Shamrock Rovers have been given the green light to play all of their Europa Conference League home games at Tallaght Stadium.

The Hoops appear to be destined for the Conference League, resuming the draw at home to Ferencvaros tomorrow night in the second leg of their Europa League play-off.

Rovers will have to bear the cost of additional measures to comply with UEFA Category 4 stadium requirements, but they say it’s a price worth paying.

In a statement on Wednesday, Shamrock Rovers said: “This is the result our supporters and all of Shamrock Rovers FC have been hoping for, and while the club will have to bear the cost of the additional measures necessary to comply with category 4 of the “UEFA. The demands of the stadium are a price to pay to make this wish come true.

“Following the completion of SDCC (South Dublin County Council) work on the North Stand and modifications to the Main Stand, the stadium will be Category 4 compliant with no further work from 2023.”
