Bohemians' UEFA Europa Conference League second leg tie against Stjarnan FC will take place at the Aviva Stadium, the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) has confirmed.

Bohemians will face the Icelandic outfit in Dublin on Thursday, July 15th, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

“Further details on stadium capacity and ticketing will be made available in due course,” the FAI said.

Keith Long's side will face Starjnan in Iceland in the first leg on July 8th, with an 8.45pm kick-off.

Under the current Covid restrictions, 200 fans are permitted to attend live matches. However, 500 fans are allowed to attend a game in a venue which has an overall capacity of 5,000 or more.

If the Government allows the game to be a pilot event, 2,000-3,000 fans could be allowed to attend.

A crowd of 3,000 will be allowed to attend Ireland's rugby international against Japan on July 3rd.
