Treacy hits out at lack of tickets for Dundalk supporters for trip to Cork
Dundalk FC chairman Mike Treacy has hit out at Cork City over their failure to make additional tickets available to away fans for this Friday’s top of the table meeting between the sides at Turner’s Cross.
The club’s allocation of 300 tickets sold out within 35 minutes when they went on sale last week with Dundalk confirming yesterday that they would not be receiving any additional tickets for the game.
Reacting to the news on Twitter, Treacy said: “Unbelievable. Biggest match of the year and our supporters disallowed from showing up. Price of success for @DundalkFC.”
Friday’s match could see Stephen Kenny’s side take a significant step towards regaining the title as they could open up a nine point gap over their opponents with the benefit of a game in hand.
Dundalk FC confirmed yesterday they would not be receiving further tickets for the game.
In a statement they said: “Dundalk Football Club can confirm that there are no further tickets available to purchase for the game against Cork City on Friday at Turner’s Cross, having received its full allocation.
“Cork City has asked the Club to remind Dundalk supporters that anyone who has purchased tickets in the home sections of Turner’s Cross is liable to be refused entry into the stadium or asked to leave, in accordance with the stadium regulations.
“The Lilywhite Lounge will be open for those fans who want to watch the game with other Dundalk supporters.”
Friday’s match is being screened live RTÉ from 7.15pm.
