The Dublin derby between Bohs and Shamrock Rovers has been moved from the opening night of the Airtricity Premier Division season to a Saturday afternoon kick-off.
After discussions between both clubs and the FAI, who had consulted with An Garda Síochána, the mouthwatering Dalymount Park clash has been switched from Friday 14 February, to the following day. It will now kick off at 2pm.
All other games will be played on the Friday, with champions Dundalk hosting Derry City, and newly promoted Shelbourne travelling to Turner's Cross to face Cork City.
St Pat's host Waterford and Sligo Rovers make the trip to Finn Harps.
