Dundalk have won this trophy twice but this is Rovers' first time to take part in this competition which began in 2014. Winners should claim the 2020 and 2021 editions of this competition since last year's final was never replayed after adverse weather caused it to be cancelled.

The Hoops have six starters from the cup final in tonight's team plus Sean Gannon who lined out for Dundalk. Sean Hoare makes his competitive debut for the Hoops - he scored off the bench in extra-time to help Dundalk to their win in the FAI Cup Final.
