Club Statement | 11/04/24

Following the conclusion of a disciplinary process, Shelbourne FC has been informed of the decision by the independent disciplinary control unit of the FAI to prevent Shelbourne supporters from attending the upcoming game with Galway United. 

Shelbourne FC accepts the decision of the independent disciplinary control Unit . We understand the disappointment this will cause to our supporters. Collective punishment for the conduct of the few impacts innocent supporters who abide by the rules and represent the club with passion and pride.

The club is committed to working with the FAI and all stakeholders to ensure what happened last Friday night never happens again. We are asking all of our supporters not to purchase tickets for the home section for this game in Galway and to respect and abide by the decision made by the independent disciplinary control unit. 

Shelbourne FC wishes to be unequivocally clear: any further incidents involving pyrotechnics or missiles being thrown onto the pitch home or away this season may result in the most severe consequences, which to date are without prior precedent in Irish football. 

Any further incident at games involving Shelbourne FC may result in full ground closures and possible points deductions.
