Bohemians have confirmed their women's side will play against Palestine in a friendly in May.

The match will take place on May 15th in Dalymount Park, with all funds raised going towards humanitarian causes and to cover Palestine's travel costs.


The club has also agreed to attend a friendly in Palestine, when it's possible to do so.

Chief Operations Officer at Bohemians, Daniel Lambert, says planning for the fixture has been underway for months.

"We have been in dialogue with the Palestinian ambassador in Dublin, and the Palestinian FA since November just to see if we could try arrange a game.

"We said we would be very keen to host the Palestinian team at Dalymount, and just to see if dates work. We have pinned down a date, and having a women's game was something we were very keen on, and they were keen as well so came to an agreement yesterday.

"Some of the funds will be used to pay for the travel of the team. Beyond that, all funds will to humanitarian causes. One that will definitely be there is Sport for life Palestine, an existing partner with the club and someone we are working closely with.

"When we began to work with them last January, the children who access their services face huge amounts of challenges. The challenges they face today are far greater than last year."
