IMPORTANT: 2018 membership cards and access to Dalymount Lane v Shamrock Rovers

Dalymount Lane by Sportsfile

In a break with tradition, all 2018 membership cards will be sent out to members before our February 16 SSE Airtricity League opener.

This is on the instruction of An Garda Síochána who insist members and season ticket holders must present 2018 cards to enter Dalymount Lane. No 2017 card will be accepted.

That decision is out of the club’s hands but our No 1 priority is to ensure our members and supporters have the least amount of hassle as possible when attending our games.

To help us with that, we ask if members have changed postal address, to contact immediately to advise of same or if you have any other further queries.

Due to unprecedented demand and the Jodi Stand selling out for this game, the club last night reluctantly took the decision to suspend season ticket sales/renewals and new membership sign-ups.

Membership renewals are unaffected. Season ticket sales and new membership sign-ups will resume on February 17.

Meanwhile, we wish to remind you that kick-off time for this game has been brought forward to 7.30pm to facilitate live coverage on RTÉ 2.

An Garda Síochána have also insisted that there will be NO ENTRY to Dalymount Lane after 7.30pm sharp.

We strongly advise supporters not to leave any margin for error here and to please try to arrive before 7pm and we advise against leaving it any later than 7.10pm.

In previous seasons, large crowds of people arriving in a small time-frame led to severe crowd congestion in the run-up to kick-off, which in turn led to supporters missing the start of the Dublin Derby.

Last season, however, fans really heeded our warnings regarding late arrival, which greatly assisted our crowd control on the night. We were extremely grateful for your assistance.

Again, we do not wish to see any of our members or ticket-holders miss out, so we appeal to you to once again assist us in reducing the chances of crowd congestion by arriving as early as possible.

Our turnstiles and bars will open at 5pm sharp.

  • Members and season ticket holders must enter Dalymount Lane via the North Circular Road.
  • Match ticket holders must enter Dalymount Lane via St Peter’s Road.

Thank you for your cooperation and your continued dedicated support.

The rest of the board of Bohemian FC would also like to extend our gratitude to membership director Stephen Burke for facilitating the delivery of 2018 membership cards at such late notice.
