The kick off time for the President's Cup has been confirmed by the FAI.

SSE Airtricity League Champions Dundalk will take on FAI Cup holders Shamrock Rovers in Oriel Park at 3pm on Sunday 9 February.

This will be the third time that the Lilywhites will host the final and they have won the competition twice.

Shamrock Rovers are making their first appearance in the now traditional curtain raiser for the new senior men’s domestic season.

The Hoops began their 2020 pre-season with a 70 minute match against Lucan United on Saturday afternoon. 

Played out in a downpour in Celbridge, Rovers were leading 3-1 after goals from Dean Williams, Graham Burke and Gary O'Neill, before the referee ended the game early with the pitch cutting up badly and having standing water in places.
