Dundalk are trying to move their Europa League group stage games to Belfast, including the one against Arsenal in December.
Independent.ie report that Dundalk want to play all three of their home Europa League group stage games at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park in Belfast, including their match against Arsenal.
Dundalk were initially planning to play all their matches at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, but the Irish Rugby Football Union refused to let them do so for their opening game. They want to use it for a kicking session instead.
As it stands, that means Dundalk will play one match at Tallaght Stadium and the other two at the Aviva.
However, with the Dundalk hierarchy growing exasperated, they’re now hoping to move to Belfast. It’s unlikely they’re successful, having played in the Tallaght Stadium in their Europa League campaigns in 2011 and 2016. But they’re going to try.
Fortunately, Arsenal don’t play Dundalk away until December 10th. That’s plenty of time to resolve the situation and prepare for the match without the current uncertainty.
