FINN Harps will be able to host 800 fans for Friday night’s visit of St Patrick’s Athletic to Finn Park.
The club has confirmed that the permitted attendance has increased meaning many fans will be back in the venue for the first time since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Harps moved off the relegation play-off spot thanks to a 3-0 win at bottom club Longford Town on Saturday.
Some away fans were in attendance as Ryan Rainey and Sean Boyd netted after an early own goal put Ollie Horgan’s team in front.
In a statement announcing the ticketing arrangements, Harps said:
Finn Harps FC are delighted to confirm that the permitted attendance for the match vs St Pat’s this Friday 20th August at Finn Park (KO 8pm) has been set at 800 patrons.
We look forward to welcoming many fans back to Finn Park who have not been able to attend in a long time and to having their vocal backing as Ollie Horgan’s charges look to make it three league wins on the bounce.
