League of Ireland Premier Division 1992-1993

Select Year

Cork City landed the Premier Division title for the first time after a three-way tie with Shelbourne and Bohemians, and an extended play-off series to decide the Championship. A 3:2 win over Shelbourne at the RDS in the sixth play-off game finally earned the club its day of glory.

It was a momentous season on other fronts also with City moving to a new stadium in Bishopstown as ambition continued to grow.

There were early exits in the League and FAI Cups, however, though the Munster Cup was kept for another year following a 3:1 win over Fermoy.

Note 1: The regular season initially saw the 12 teams use a traditional round-robin format with each team playing 22 games on a home and away basis. The division was then split into two groups, a top six and a bottom six. After the split, the six teams played the other teams in their group in a second series of 10 games again using a round-robin format.

Note 2: Shelbourne qualified for the 1993–94 European Cup Winners’ Cup after winning the 1992–93 FAI Cup final.

Note 3: Bohemians actually finished the season with the best goal difference, but at the time League of Ireland rules stated that the title could not be won on goal difference and a play-off would be required. Cork City landed the Premier Division title for the first time after a three-way tie with Shelbourne and Bohemians, and an extended play-off series to decide the league winners.
