Trophy Tour kicks off in Carlisle Grounds

As the build-up to the 2019 UEFA European Under-17 Championships gathers pace, a trophy tour of the seven different venues that will be used kicked off at the Carlisle Grounds.
18th Apr 2019

The home of Bray Wanderers in County Wicklow was the first stop on a tour that will also include visits to City Calling Stadium, Home Farm FC, Regional Sports Centre, Tallaght Stadium, Tolka Park, and UCD Bowl.

That will see the delegation, led by tournament mascot Barry The Bodhrán, cover four different counties and hand over the plaque to declare each an official venue of this year's event.

The games get underway on May 3 with the Republic of Ireland taking on Greece, Czech Republic meeting Belgium, Netherlands facing Sweden, and France coming up against England on an action-packed opening day.

The full set of fixtures were confirmed last week with all roads leading to the final in Tallaght Stadium on Sunday, May 19.

Tickets are now available with Under-16s going for FREE and adult prices only €5
