    The 2019 SSE Airtricity League season will begin on Friday, February 15 and it will end with the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Final on Sunday, November 3.



    The first game of the new campaign will actually be the President's Cup between Dundalk and Cork City, which will be played on either Saturday, February 9 or Sunday, February 10.

    Dundalk will then begin the defence of their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division title on the next weekend, while the First Division will kick off a week later on Friday, February 22.

    Another key date for the calendar is the EA SPORTS Cup Final, which will be played on Saturday, September 14.

    The mid-season break will take place from Saturday, June 15 through to Thursday, June 27.

    The official Fixture List for the 2019 season will be released on Wednesday, December 19.

    Yeah, releasing the season fixtures in the middle of the week before Christmas, when no-one will have an inch of space for them.

    No chance of a spread like the EPL got in July, and gets every year.

    Send them to the clubs then, and have a splash a week later when the papers are gagging for news. Launch the damn thing, don't just release it.

    Good at least that we know when to expect them but that's about the height of it.
