The Hoops announced via their website this morning they will play EPL side Burnley in Tallaght Stadium on 14th July.
The Clarets are coming over to Ireland for a pre season training camp and are sure to receive a warm welcome thanks to the presence of their Ireland internationals Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Stephen Ward and Kevin Long.
Jeff Hendrick in particular has had a memorable season since his £10 million move from Derby County last August.
Last weekend he picked up Burnley’s goal of the season award for his stunning effort against Bournemouth in December.
Speaking after receiving his award at the clubs annual Player of the Year night last Sunday he said:
“I had a feeling definitely I was going to win.
“There’s some great goals, some good team build-up and Steven’s (Defour) goal against Bristol City was very nice.
“I’m happy I won it.”
Tickets for July’s game are priced at €15 / €10 / €5 and are available online at http://shamrockrovers.ie/match-tickets/
A special offer is available for Shamrock Rovers members and season ticket holders at €10 which are available on presentation of season ticket at the club Megastore from today or on match days at Tallaght Stadium from next Monday’s game v Galway United.
