Bohemians v Stjarnan sold out

All tickets for the 6000-capacity Europa Conference tie between Bohemians and Stjarnan at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday July 15th have now been sold.

Tickets went on sale for Bohemians members and season ticket holders yesterday at noon and on general sale today at noon.

Bohemian FC wants to put on record our gratitude for the unwavering support of our fanbase and wider community since the onset of the pandemic in March of last year.

This season, where there was no guarantee that any member or season ticket holder would be able to attend any game, it is remarkable and indeed humbling to all involved in the club that we have the greatest number of members in our 131-year history.

We therefore simply cannot wait until our team, members, season ticket holders and wider fanbase are all finally together under the one roof in 12 days’ time after that agonising 16-month absence.

Why are tickets only available in pairs?

We have understandably had some queries about the necessity to sell tickets in pairs only.

We are seriously hamstrung by the current Covid-19 restrictions to have two metre social-distancing in the stadium.

This is a government test event – there is no wriggle room here.

Despite having a seating capacity of 51,700, the only way we could get capacity as high as 6,000 was by selling tickets in pairs.

Our motivation throughout was to get as much of our fanbase under the one roof for the first time since March 2020 and behind our team.

We understand that selling tickets in pairs is frustrating for people. But to sell in singles, capacity would be drastically reduced, while the flexibility of selling in groups of more than two would require a bespoke Aviva Stadium seat map, which was not a runner for a one-off event.

We encourage fans to ‘bubble-up’ where possible, and we hope supporters will understand that this imperfect situation was preferable to having just 200 fans in Dalymount Park or 3,000 or so in the Aviva.

A lot of time and effort has gone into moving this game to the Aviva by club staff and volunteers.

And, notwithstanding the obstacles we have had to overcome and the less than ideal ticketing and social-distancing arrangements, we cannot wait to see you all on Thursday July 15 right behind Keith Long’s Red and Black Army.

PREVIEW: BOHEMIANS v ST PATRICK’S ATHLETIC

SSE Airtricity League
Friday July 2 2021
Dalymount Park, 7.45pm

Keith Long has told Bohemians to use tonight’s Dublin derby against St Patrick’s Athletic as a chance to refocus following last week’s bruising 4-0 defeat against Sligo Rovers.

Stephen O’Donnell’s Saints have had Bohs’ number in their two previous meetings this season.

But both defeats were tight affairs – first a 1-0 at Dalymount in the first series of games and then a 2-1 mugging in Richmond Park in May.

Tonight’s opposition top the table on goal difference ahead of Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers, with Bohs eight points adrift in fourth.

Long said: “This is an opportunity to refocus now. They have beaten us twice this season and we know how good a side they are.

“We had been on a good run prior to Sligo and it is important that we try to bounce back with a good performance.”

That defeat in the Showgrounds was a kick in the teeth for Bohs who went into the game in form with four wins in a draw from their previous five games.

But in an encounter that saw both defences carved open with unusual ease, it was Liam Buckley’s Bit O’Red who had their scoring boots on.

Bohs had an abundance of goal-scoring opportunities but could not – other than a Georgie Kelly effort that was controversially ruled offside – find the net.

Long said: “It was a chastening experience in the Showgrounds last Saturday as we struggled badly to follow up our wins here at home to Drogheda and Shamrock Rovers. The truth is we never got going, and were a little fortunate in the end that we did not concede more.

“It looked like we lacked energy and we did not play with the tempo and intensity of recent games.

“Sligo are a good side with good attacking players but we very much contributed to our own downfall, conceding some poor goals and failing to take the chances we created.

“I don’t want to take away from Sligo’s performance but it would have been interesting if the disallowed goal we got just after half-time had stood.

“Having watched the replay back numerous times, it’s difficult to see how Georgie is deemed to be offside and at 2-1 it would have been game-on having started the second half brightly.

“Instead, we conceded a bad third goal and were comprehensively beaten. It was a bad night for us and sometimes that can happen in football but it was not for the lack of effort from the boys.”

This is Our Place – A Survey of Dalymount Park, the Home of Irish Football: Map and Publication launched

Visual Artist Dorothy Smith and Bohemian Football Club are delighted to be able to reveal a map and publication that records and celebrates Dalymount Park’s unique standing in sport, music, architecture and Dublin folklore.

Both the map and publication are now available via the club’s online store.

Bohemians’ home ground since 1901, this map and publication come at a time when Dalymount Park in its current guise, as it has been known and loved for generations, is nearing its end.

Dublin City Council, who purchased the site in 2015, plan to demolish and build a new municipal sports stadium and community hub in its place.

It will remain the home ground of Bohs, maintaining the club’s long-standing relationship with the place and its local community.
