Harps v UCD Earlier Kick off


Finn Harps have announced that following consultation with the FAI, Fridays match v UCD will kick off at the earlier time of 5pm.

We very much regret the inconvenience caused to our supporters but the club has no choice following the failure of the floodlight system to pass a test on Wednesday evening.

There have been several issues with floodlights at Finn Park in recent years and the club has not been in a position to access the grant for an LED system but continue to pursue this avenue. The club ordered and paid for components before the season, but were informed late on that the order could not be fulfilled. Further efforts to source the needed components saw a delivery today, but the wrong type was sent to us meaning the test this evening was failed.

It continues to be a huge challenge to ensure the facilities at Finn Park meet licencing criteria and we are very grateful to our volunteers and local tradespeople for their ongoing efforts. This regrettable situation is further evidence that the move to a new stadium is vital for the survival of the club.

Following Friday’s match the board will continue efforts to address the floodlight situation for future home matches and inform supporters of any developments.

We would again like to thank our supporters for their understanding and continued support.

Tickets for Friday can be purchased at www.finnharps.ie or at Aldi side of ground on matchnight.
