Fixtures Published for U17 Euro’s

The fixture schedule has been finalised for the 2019 UEFA European Under-17 Championships taking place in the Republic of Ireland with games running from May 3-19.

While FAI focus has been in part on governance and political interrogation, the work of a sporting body goes on and preparations can now move into the final phase for the games taking place in Dublin, Wicklow, Waterford and Longford.

Colin O’Brien’s Republic of Ireland team will kick off their tournament at Tallaght Stadium on Friday, May 3 when they take on Greece at 20:00.

Ireland’s second game takes them down to Waterford where the RSC will host their clash with the Czech Republic on Monday, May 6, before they return to Tallaght Stadium to finish off Group A with a game against Belgium on Thursday, May 9.

The other games will be staged at the Carlisle Grounds in Bray, City Calling Stadium in Longford, Home Farm FC, Tolka Park, and UCD Bowl in Dublin.

Among the marquee games are likely to be France Vs England in Longford on May 3rd, Italy against Germany the following night in Tallaght and The Netherlands against England in Tolka Park on May 6th.
