Bohemians have confirmed that they will play their Europa League qualifying tie at the Aviva Stadium next month, should they be drawn at home.

The north Dublin club play out of Dalymount Park in Phibsorough, but they will be playing south of the Liffey after reaching an agreement with the FAI.

The game will take place behind closed doors on 27 August, with the club confirming that no supporters can attend, as per UEFA's own protocols.

"Hosting a potential home tie at a modern and spacious world class facility would allow the club to maintain the absolute maximum levels of health and safety measures in line with Uefa Covid-19 European football protocols", Bohs said in a statement.

The tie will be played over one leg, rather than the usual home and away format, because of the impact of the coronavirus on the soccer calendar.

Bohemians won't learn their opponents until the draw is made on 10 August.

The Gypsies qualified for Europe's secondary club competition - along with Derry City and FAI Cup winners Shamrock Rovers - after finishing third in the Premier Division of the SSE Airtricity League in 2019.

The ground on Lansdowne Road hosted the final of the competition in 2011, while Dundalk played a Champions League qualifier there five years later.
