    ASP is a great location. Alas not going to be. Mounthawk Park is the home of Kerry football. Everyone involved in the KDL is familiar with it. The youth teams play there. Just have to cut the cloth to work with what is there.
    The main stand in the Markets Field is for one half of the length of the park. Mounthawk Park is the same. It is what it is.
    If Kerry FC can become established, there will be a fair argument for funding of ground improvements at both local and national level.
    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.

    Some coverage of the press conference by Final Whistle, even if it later tails off into a potted biog of Denbehy:

    "they are confident that Kerry FC will be granted a license in November that Kerry FC will be playing League Ireland soccer on Friday nights in February 2023."
    If Kerry are in the League of Ireland next February, it'll be 15 years after knocking Waterford out of the League Cup, in a penalty shootout.

    The nagging concern is that it's still unclear as to what levels of funding are being made available, even if the initial aim would be to keep the budget as tight as possible for a First Division club:

    I really hope so. Given the population amd good Junior sides, Kerry will make a great addition to the LOI. Best of luck!

    Season tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks, which seems to be putting the cart before the horse, but presumably is aimed to feed into the licencing process by showing both demand and potential revenue:

    Athlone had a season ticket price of 150. Treaty had a 170 season ticket and have a membership price of 240. Members get a discount on season ticket. It should be a guide for Kerry FC pricing.

    I'll definitely take in a game in Tralee, with a night tacked on as well. I imagine a lot of people around the league would be up for it too. Obviously they'll need to build their own support locally, but I would think they'll get decent enough away visits for the first season or so anyway.

    Particularly (even assuming Cork are promoted either directly or through the playoffs) when there could still be three other Munster teams in the division next season.

    Id love that too but wouldn’t hold my breath on a cup draw, I’m still waiting Pats to draw Cobh away in the cup as it’s the last ground in the LOI I haven’t been to. It’s been 14 years now since Pats have played there, the last time they were in the Premier

    If there is potential talks of creating some 'Third Tier Championship' then should Kerry FC be considered for this first!

    Are they trying to get in ahead now before something is set up by the FAI!

    Anyone else feel that Kerry FC need an extra bit to their name like a "United" or "Celtic" or "Athletic"? Just to distinguish themselves from Kerry GAA in everyday conversations?

    In Cork, "City" are the soccer team and "Cork" are the GAA team and in Sligo you have "Rovers" and in Longford you have "The Town" etc.

    Imagine the conversation starting...
    "good result for Kerry last night?"
    "Which one?"
    Etc

    The alternative is that they beome to be referred to as "the soccer team" or just "FC". I think they'd be better off picking a name tbh.

    There is a vacant spot in the First Division. Kerry are the only non league club at U19 level. If new clubs are to be encouraged to join the youth leagues, Kerry are first in line to set the example of a pathway to the LoI.

    There is an obsession with names. Kerry is Kerry. Get on with the game!
