The Slovakian FA have confirmed that the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2020 play-off semi-final will be held in Bratislava.
Slovakia had been playing in Trnava while their stadium in the capital was being renovated.
They did use the new Tehelné Pole against Paraguay in March but it has yet to host a game at total capacity of 20,000 so doubts remained over the choice of venue.
However, they confirmed today that the game will be held in Bratislava.
It takes place on Thursday 26 March, kick-off 7:45pm Irish time.
Ireland are entitled to 5% of the tickets, which is around 1,000 but the FAI are hoping to secure more for visiting fans.
The winner of the game will play Bosnia and Herzegovina or Northern Ireland in the Path B play-off final.
