OUR next fixture in the Danske Bank Premiership takes us to the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium, where Institute are playing their football again this season.
Here is all that you need to know before making the trip this weekend:
The club would like to remind supporters that Saturday’s fixture will have an earlier kick-off time of 2pm. This is due to the EA Sports Cup final between Derry City and Dundalk also being played at the Brandywell on the day, that game kicking off at of 8pm.
Tickets can be purchased in advance of Saturday’s game online, through the following link: https://institutefc.co.uk/tickets.html. We would encourage supporters to purchase via this avenue if possible, to speed up the process of getting into the stadium pre-game. Hard copies of tickets will be on sale at the Brandywell as normal, priced at £12 for adults and £8 for concessions.
Limited spaces remain on the Inver Red and Whites’ SC bus, leaving Inver Park at 11.30am sharp. To pre-book, contact their Facebook page directly.
Larne NISC’s bus is full booked at this time, leaving Larne Rangers Club at 11.15am sharp, with a pick up at Larne Football Social Club.
For those driving to the game, there is expected to be ample parking at the ground.
1889 SPORTS & SOCIAL CLUB
Our Social Club will be open from 12pm on Saturday until late, for supporters coming back from the game. The Matchday Special for this will be Gordons and lemonade with honeycomb and berries, priced at just £4. Our regular range of beers and Magners will be available on draft, with bottles and spirits also available.
Continuing into the weekend, Budweiser, Corona and Coors bottles will still be on offer at 4 bottles for £10!
Institute come in to Saturday’s game in 11th place after six games played. A 0-0 draw away to Coleraine at the end of August keeps ‘Stute above Warrenpoint Town in the table, who will be desperate to kick start their league campaign with a positive result on Saturday. Like ourselves, Institute go into this weekend’s fixture off the back of a midweek cup game, with an experimental side, including a number of young debutants, narrowly losing out to Limavady United on penalties in the North West Cup.
