Club Statement: Travel From Sofia

We appreciate the FAI's understanding of the predicament that we find ourselves in and their sensible decision to call off tomorrow's SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture away to Shelbourne.

Under UEFA regulations, the use of charters for European games is mandatory from the third qualifying round on.

Because of the current difficulties in the aviation industry, which are well known, we and our travel brokers have had immense difficulty sourcing charters, the result of which has left the players and staff in Sofia and not in a position to return to Dublin until the early hours of Sunday morning.

Throughout the week, we appraised the FAI and UEFA of our predicament and were grateful for their assistance.

We understand that many fans would have been looking forward to the game, we regret that this fixture is not going ahead as scheduled due to these unprecedented circumstances.
