From May 3, the 2019 UEFA European Under-17 Championships will be played across four counties in seven different venues with 16 teams involved.
25th Feb 2019

Once the draw is made in Dublin on April 4, each of the teams participating in this year's tournament will know where their games will be held, with the options being: Carlisle Grounds, Tallaght Stadium, Tolka Park, Whitehall Stadium, UCD Bowl, City Calling Stadium and Regional Sports Centre.

The trio of stadiums located outside of Dublin - Carlisle Grounds (Wicklow), City Calling Stadium (Longford), and Regional Sports Centre (Waterford) - fall under the UEFA-set radius for venues from the team hotel, which will be CityWest, Dublin.

Tallaght Stadium, which now has a capacity of 8,000 following the opening of a new third stand, will be host the final on Sunday, May 19. The ground has previously hosted UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League games, as well as the 2009 FAI Cup Final and three EA SPORTS Cup Finals.

"As manager of Tallaght Stadium, I am delighted that our venue has been chose to host the final of the UEFA European Under-17 Championships," said Nicola Coffey, Tallaght Stadium Manager.

"It is a great honour for the venue to host such a prestigious event and I've no doubt both the teams and their travelling support will receive a warm welcome in South Dublin."

Colin O'Brien's Republic of Ireland team - who qualify automatically as host nation - will play two of their group games in Tallaght Stadium and one in Waterford's RSC.
