Travel to the Aviva Stadium to support The Boys in Green

Get behind the boys in green in their crucial upcoming autumn World Cup qualifiers.


Martin O'Neill's men return to the Aviva Stadium this coming October to continue their brave efforts to qualify for a place in the World Cup 2018 in Russia. With the end of qualifying in sight Ireland know every point is vital as the final group standings begin to take shape. 

The men in green must recover from a close 1-0 loss to Serbia in order to keep their World Cup dream on track. They will get their chance in the crucial qualifying match against Moldova on 6th October at the Aviva stadium. Wales are now back in contention after their win against Moldova and are now one point ahead of the Boys in Green. If Ireland have any aspirations of winning qualification, a win against Moldova is essential. Ireland fans will hope the team can give one big performance to keep us in contention to qualify for next summers finals. After the game against Moldova Ireland finish off their campaign with a crucial match in Cardiff against Wales.

With 2 fixtures remaining, Ireland need to improve their current form to keep their chances of finishing top two alive. See the upcoming fixtures below.
