Stephen Kenny’s Republic of Ireland will kick-off their UEFA Nations League campaign with a home game versus Ukraine on Saturday, June 4th next with the fixtures concluding against Armenia at the Aviva Stadium on Monday, September 26th 2022.
The Nations League B Group 1 schedule, released by UEFA this morning, will see Ireland then play Armenia away (June 7th), Scotland at home (June 11th) and Ukraine away (June 14th) in their other opening games next summer.
The League B programme will conclude in September when Ireland return to Glasgow on September 23rd before the Armenia home game on Monday, September 26th.
FAI officials will now commence talks on arrangements for all home and away games, including ticketing, with their colleagues from the Ukrainian, Scottish and Armenian associations.
Full details on FAI season tickets for 2022, to include all three UEFA Nations League fixtures and the March friendlies, will be announced early in the New Year.

There are no direct flights to either Kiev or Yerevan (pictured above) and with fans having to include those two trips in the space of seven days in June that will be a challenge but it will be exciting to have games to look forward to.
Northern Ireland will face Greece, Kosovo and the winner of a tie between Cyprus and Estonia. That will be somewhat easier for travelling fans but we are still awaiting the full fixtures to be confirmed.
