Cork City FC can confirm that the 2022 First Division season will increase by 6 matches and now consist of a total of 32 games (16 home and 16 away).
This decision follows discussions between clubs and the FAI regarding the duration of the season, as well, as the number of teams in the division for the forthcoming campaign. It was originally envisaged that the season would consist of 27 games, as had been the case in 2021, and based on this the club priced season tickets with this in mind.
All Season Tickets ordered up to now will cover all 16 home league games. In light of this change, the club will now be updating our Season Ticket prices to reflect the extra three home league games that we will have at Turner’s Cross.
The new prices for Season Tickets will be effective from 6 pm on Friday, 17th of December, and will be priced as follows:
*Reserved Seats will be €50 as normal
Commenting on the news, the club’s Chief Operating Officer Éanna Buckley said: “We are very pleased that this latest development will mean that we have more opportunities to welcome our supporters back to Turner’s Cross in the coming season, remaining hugely appreciative of the wonderful attendances we have had since supporters were allowed to return to matches in the second half of last season.”
“Naturally, we have had to update our prices to reflect that there will be more games included in the package, however those who have purchased already can be very pleased that they will be getting even better value for their money than originally envisaged. In the interests of fairness, the updated pricing was worked out on the same cost per game basis as was previously applied to the original season ticket prices.”
“There has been a tremendous response thus far to the Season Ticket package, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has signed up for 2022 . All of the Season Tickets which have been purchased thus far have been printed and posted.”
“The club continues to work with the FAI and other relevant stakeholders to ensure that these types of decisions are made in a more timely fashion in the future, however, on this occasion we feel the final decision taken will be to the benefit of the league and Cork City FC.”
