Republic of Ireland supporters are seeking to turn the South Stand into a sea of green for Thursday’s crunch FIFA World Cup Qualifier with Georgia at the Aviva Stadium.
Joint supporters groups have purchased 160 new flags to compliment those already seen at matches and aim to extend the colourful display normally seen in the Singing Section, right across the South Stand.
Cabinteely’s Under 16 team will be distributing the new flags to supporters arriving early into the Aviva Stadium on Thursday.
The aim of the display is to get all supporters involved in expanding the great atmosphere normally associated with the Singing Section right across the whole of the South Stand and indeed to rest of the stadium.
This is the beginning of an initiative that all supporters groups involved would like to grow and encourage all supporters in the stadium to contribute to the atmosphere. Flag bearers are kindly requested to return their flags to the collection point to ensure this initiative can be rolled out at each home game
The Lansdowne Roar was back in full ferocity for the last qualifying campaign and it will be needed again on Thursday evening as Martin O’Neill’s Boys in Green continue on their quest for qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Supporters are encouraged to be in their seats by 19:30 to greet the team when they arrive onto the pitch.
The South Stand display will take place as the teams emerge from the tunnel while UEFA’s presentation to Ireland supporters for their outstanding contribution to EURO 2016 will also be made before the game.
