Cliftonville friendly moved to Donegal Celtic's ground

Our friendly against Cliftonville on Saturday 17th July has been moved to Donegal Celtic Park in West Belfast.

Cliftonville have been extremely fortunate and have secured funding from the Irish Football Association to develop a 3G pitch at their Solitude ground. This work is due to start immediately and won’t be completed in time for our friendly, so they have arranged for the game to take place at Donegal Celtic’s ground instead. Further details can be found on Cliftonville’s website.

A representative from Cliftonville said "We’re very sorry to have to make this change of venue and we’re grateful to Donegal Celtic for their help with this, because it’s vital that we get the new 3G pitch installed as soon as possible.

"We know it will be disappointing for some fans that we’re not able to play at Solitude but we’ll still do a social function there on the Friday night before the game, so people can pay a visit to our normal home ground."

Full details of match arrangements will be announced nearer the time.


Please note - in case of any confusion, the match is still in Belfast, NOT in Co.Donegal.

Donegal Celtic Park is in West Belfast, about the same distance from the city centre as Cliftonville’s ground.
