Keane To Bring Galaxy To Tallaght


Hollywood glamour will arrive in Tallaght in February just as Shamrock Rovers are making their final preparations for the 2015 Premier Division campaign.

The Hoops can confirm that the club will play host to MLS champions, LA Galaxy in a friendly game at Tallaght Stadium on Saturday, February 21.

The game will see LA Galaxy captain and Irish football legend Robbie Keane play in his hometown stadium.

Announcing the game, Shamrock Rovers chairman, Jonathan Roche said: “Shamrock Rovers are delighted to be playing host to LA Galaxy at Tallaght. We very much look forward to welcoming everyone from the club here, and particularly to welcoming Robbie Keane home. We know Robbie spends a lot of time in the area when he’s home from the US, so I’m sure it will be great for him to finally play in Tallaght Stadium.

“We have had quite a few great players grace the Tallaght Stadium pitch against us, including Ronaldo and Del Piero, but to have our own local footballing hero play here will be even more special. It should be a great occasion.”

The game will have a 4pm kick-off at Tallaght Stadium on Saturday, February 21, 2015.

Tickets will go on sale early in the new year and further details will be announced in due course.

Priority for tickets will go to Shamrock Rovers members and season ticket holders. Season tickets are currently on sale through the club office at Tallaght Stadium, priced from €200 for adults and €75 for children.
