    You have a new fan for next season

    After watching the FAI Cup Final and being utterly sick of English football I have decided to support my local team from now on - Sporting Fingal.

    How much are season tickets? Good atmosphere at Morton?

    Free season tickets? I know they have financial backing but how on earth would they make money from giving free season tickets out.

    This years season ticket was 250 i think. I had one but cant remember how much exactly. It may be dearer next year as the gate fee will go up from €12 to €15 for an adult. Under 16's will be less of course.
    Next season will be another benchmark for the club's attendance figures and we will see how many new fans we will get on the back of the cup win .
    Our attendances will nearly double with drogheda, bohs, dundalk, shamrock rovers visiting us next year and hopefully we can get over the thousand mark of home supporters and a larger away support and we could do a shamrock rovers once we move into the new stadium
    Im already looking forward to pre season :

    Well done, you really know how to encourage support for the LOI......I mean the last thing we want is new people involved. Let's keep support at current levels.

    I live five mins away from Morton Stadium, i want to start supporting my local team - do you want to keep current attendance figures for the league as they are or should i go and support UCD so i dont appear as a "glory supporter" ?

    Support your local team and fair play to you.
    Get involved if you can at all and enjoy European football.

    You'd swear the league could afford to turn potential fans away.

    UCD just won the First Division so it's basically the same....

    Ignore the negative lads, Naitch. Our ground aint the worst. The facilities are fine and the stand is grand. Openess of the ground and running track dont help with the atmosphere. Our crowd is growing and dont be fooled by what some people say on here. There is a lot of negativity from certain people around here about our club that just isnt true.

    You would be very welcome next season. Its a very family orientated club and there has been some great nights this season.

    The crowd will be a lot better next year (we did have the second highest in the 1st DIV by the way)

    There will be plenty of derbies also with the likes of Bohs, Pats and Shamrock rvs bringing good away support.

    I wont lie. Not every game is great but after a few you might just find your hooked. (does take a few though) Iv been going since day one and I love it.

    The club will probably have the price for season tickets up before christmas. They did last year.

    i been reading all the negativity towards fingal lately but i say fair play to them
    most people are just simply jealous of what they re chieving so they rip the **** outta them

    best of luck to fingal next season and in the future

    Naitch . All new support is welcome and the fact that you are so close makes it handy . Supporters of other clubs seem to have a problem with Fingal for some reason . This league needs to adapt and a club for fans on the Northside has been sadly lacking for too long . My season ticket cost 130 euro last season but will probably be more with European and Setanta Cup football .
