Shamrock Rovers' Group Stage Games To Be Broadcast Live On Irish TV

Shamrock Rovers' Group Stage Games To Be Broadcast Live On Irish TV
By Colman Stanley Updated

Virgin Media have announced that it will be broadcasting live, all of the group stage matches from Shamrock Rovers' ongoing European campaign.

Shamrock Rovers have qualified for the Europa League play-off round, and will meet Bulgarian side, Ferencvaros, next Thursday, in the first of two legs.

Both teams are guaranteed group stage action, with the winner progressing to the Europa League group stage, and the loser qualifying for the group stages of the Europa Conference League.

The announcement comes amid much backlash on social media over the lack of live League of Ireland and European games featuring Irish sides.

Last week, only St. Patrick's Athletic's clash with CSKA Sofia was live on Irish television, while the later fixture of Shamrock Rovers vs Shkupi was not picked up, and was only available via a €10 stream with LOI TV.

Last night's clash with Shkupi was also only available from LOI TV.

The42 have reported that RTE have stated, "while it is too early to confirm whether they will show the upcoming tie, they hope to have a clearer picture by Friday."

Tomorrow evening's Europa Conference League third-round qualifying clash between St. Patrick's Athletic and CSKA Sofia will be shown live on the RTE News Channel from 19:40.

St. Pats take a 1-0 lead into the second-leg, which will be played at Tallaght Stadium, and the winner will progress to the play-off round to face either FC Basel or Brondby.
