What Time Are Ireland Playing Holland At And What Channel Is It On?

What Time Are Ireland Playing Holland At And What Channel Is It On?
By Balls Team Updated
With the big game approaching, the perennial question fans are inclined to ask is - what time are Ireland playing Holland at and what channel is it on?

Ireland's penultimate pre-Euro 2016 warm-up game kicks off this Friday as Holland come to town. We have happy memories of pre-tournament friendlies with Holland. We won 1-0 in Tilburg in 1994 through a goal from Tommy Coyne.

The Dutch will be sitting at home for the duration of the tournament, following their shocking failure to finish in the top three of their group.

They travel to Dublin this weekend in preparation for a long summer on the beach. Ireland, meanwhile, head out on a five-day trip to Fota Island in Cork immediately after the game. They arrive at their Euro 2016 training camp in Versailles next Wednesday.

Martin O'Neill is likely to announce his final 23 man squad right on the UEFA deadline on the final day of May. Ireland will be one of the last teams in the competition to formally name their squad. Ireland's Group E rivals have all revealed their hand at this stage.

Ireland's game kicks off at the Aviva Stadium at 7.45. The match will be transmitted on Setanta Ireland and Setanta Sports One. TV coverage begins at 7.00.

The game will not be screened live on a terrestrial channel. RTE will present highlights of the game at 10.40pm.

Ireland will face Belarus in their final pre-Euro 2016 friendly in Turner's Cross on Tuesday 31 May. Again, that game will be screened live on Setanta Ireland and Setanta Sports One. Coverage kicks off at 7.00pm. Like the Holland game, that match will not be shown on a terrestrial channel.


All of Ireland's group games at Euro 2016 will be screened on RTE.
