    Home games - Friday or Saturday?

    Are Athlone's home games on a Friday or a Saturday this year? The fixture list says Saturday but I seen on extratime.ie that your game against Waterford was on a Friday...

    Home games are on Saturday nights 7.30pm.

    FAI changed the Waterford game to Good Friday

    Thanks Ash. Why did the FAI change it by the way? Surely it was not their decision to make?

    As far as I know it was Waterford that requested the change. All we have done is change kick off time from 7pm to 7.30pm.

    I didn't manage to get to either of the away games last year so I'm looking forward to seeing the new ground now in a few weeks.

    Can you confirm that tonight's game against Limerick is on at 7.30?!

    Everywhere apart from the FAI have it as a 7.00 kick off.

    It's hard to know when Aertel say one thing and the FAI say another - I'm guessing it's 7.15!
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    I think (only think) it's at 7:30. We have changed all our Saturday games, except the second game against Longford) to 7:30. I presume it's starting from tonight.
