It hasn't been confirmed yet, but I guess it's pretty unlikely ye'll turn down the offer (http://www.fai.ie/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2781). :)

Welcome to Foot.ie.

Course they don't, they're a new club. I'm sure they will though.

Hi Sporting Fingal. I will always view you as the upstarts who replaced lovely, luckless Kilkenny. I may never forgive you for this. :)

I think I will align myself to SF, the people's choice. I am your No.1 fan.

I'd like to be the first offical fan of sporting fingal! might aswell because my home town team (athlone town) wouldn't get a kick in a stampede!! and probably won't be able to get a kick in the league because they owe something like a hundred grand including players wages and they can't sign any players until they can pay it, which is unlikely.

So hello i'm spcorp and i'm a sporting fingal fan....

Sporting Franchise is the clear winner in the wit stakes so far. Everything else pales in comparison.

Just beaten to it by Sniffa - you will now, in our eyes, always be Sporting Fingal's number two.

That makes two if yis, and seeing as SF replaced Kilkenny in the league, so by my reckoning the pair of you fill their old fan quota of two on here. Sorry to any other would be Fingalistas.

A replacement for Dublin City??? The election of Sporting Fingal to the league is a disgrace and an insult to all established clubs who may have considered applying for membership. Also if Fingal County Council want to provide sporting facilities for an Eircom League Club thats grand, build a stadium and lease it out to an existing club, but don't get involved in seting up a club or backing a new club with no players, fans etc.

Yes. Not only that but if you live in Fingal you will also be required to mosey along to Morton Sdadium at least twice a year. I wonder if the new bin charges of 110 pa include a season ticket?

Does anyone know how much Fingal Co Co are putting into the team? I read they are developing pitches etc in Donabate to the tune of 10m but I wonder how much if any is going towards the EL team?

No they didn't, the prize for such a defeat is Premier Division football.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm looking forward to my first season to support the Eircom League properly. It was after the influence of a Bohs fan that i got into the league. Originally i had agreed to become a Bohs fan until i heard of Sporting Fingal and decided to go with them as i live in Swords and wanted the task of supporting a team trying to make their way up through the leagues. Getting out of the A Championship was easy enough anyway hey?!

My choosing of this team means one of two things. The team can be a success and attract fans, or another Dublin club in the league is cutting into potential growth in previously existing teams' followers.

Here's looking forward to the new season! :ball: :ball: :ball:

After the great welcome, I welcome you to check out this small wikipedia article all about Fingal.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingal

We spoke our own language until the mid 1800's when it became extinct. It was a mixture of old English and Old Norse with Gaelic influences. Fingal was originally named by the Vikings and was populated by a mix of Norsemen and Irish at the time.

There is an identity out there to be tapped and awakened. It isn't 250,000 as many of that number are migrants and new arrivals, but it's still pretty big.

You gotta love our history section!

None. That i know of...

It's hard to hear anything about them. Hopefully this big launch their suppposed to be having Monday night in Corduff will reveal the final squad and a website!

They have begun training though.
