    Tallaght Stadium or Aviva Stadium for Shamrock RVS??

    If they get a big draw group where is it expected they will play their games?
    And also any chance they will expand their stadium before the games are due to be played on the 15th sept??

    I hope Tallaght. The FAI will charge a fortune getting into it and take a nice cut if its Aviva. Tallaght's safe holding is just shy of 6,000 I think - not sure are they allowed temporary seats, suppose this will unfold in coming days

    I hope they're able to keep them in Tallaght.

    Progression is the key now. Screw gates. It'll make next to no difference.

    If it was against a big enough team the Aviva would be great. I'm sure Shams would get great support from other LOI fans as well.

    What about the RDS even? Would keep it nice and compact but bring up the attendance to an achievable 18,500.

    Well think back to us v Deportivo... would Shams fill Lansdowne 2.0?

    Let's wait on the draw!

    Lansdowne would make sense for the match against the top seeds.
    Any idea how much renting Lansdowne costs? The FAI might want to rent it for cheap, but I assume there's set rates agreed with the IRFU.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    It can't be Tallaght. Tallaght is grade 3, and they need Grade 4 or higher

    What are they going to do about contracts? Most contracts end on FAI Cup final weekend in November. EL takes place until mid-December. It's hard to know on venue, Tallaght is supposed to be their home. Maybe against a big team, a so called class A team go with the Aviva.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    Would the RDS be a better idea?

    Yup thats what I was saying above. Pretty sure the 18,500 capacity is all seater too so should meet the requirements.

    Can you imagine if it was Spurs? 'Home' Spurs fans in their tens of thousands.

    If they draw Spurs and play them first then surely the match has to be at the Aviva Stadium?

    It's not really that relevant whether they play them first or not (it's the group stage rather than a two-legged tie). Would love to seem them play all the games in Tallaght but if the stadium doesn't meet the UEFA requirements then Lansdowne would be fine by me.

    I think it does matter when they play them. Rather play them in matchday one than matchday six, if you know what I mean.

    I hope the matches can be played in Tallaght some how. They wouldn't come close to filling the Aviva.

    Looking at the pots, Rovers could potentially have a group of Atletico Madrid, Lazio and Stoke, which would possibly require the RDS for all of them.
