FAI announces 2017 fixtures and major changes to League structure

Posted on

The FAI today released the fixtures for the 2017 SSE Airtricity League of Ireland. Shelbourne will start the First Division campaign at home to Longford Town on Friday, February 24th, at 7.45pm.

The FAI also announced that, from 2018, the Premier Division will be reduced to ten teams which means there will be no play-offs in the First Division this season. The winners will be promoted and 3 teams will be relegated from the Premier Division. This has a major impact on this club, and all First Division clubs who were hoping to win promotion this season, and it is more important than ever that we do everything possible to give Owen Heary and the team all the support we can.
