The 2012 EA Sports Cup final between Shamrock Rovers and Drogheda United will take place on Saturday, 22 September at Tallaght Stadium with a 5.45pm kick-off.

This decision to play the match in Tallaght came after a mutual agreement between the two clubs.

In the event of the scores being level after 90 minutes of play, then extra-time of 30 minutes will be played, followed by a penalty shoot-out if required to determine the winners.

As a result of Shamrock Rovers reaching the final, their Airtricity League Premier Division fixture away to St Patrick’s Athletic scheduled for Friday, 21 September, will now take place on Tuesday, 25 September.
