Bohemians have hit out at not receiving a ticket allocation for Monday's draw with league leaders Shamrock Rovers - and said when the sides meet at Dalymount Park next month, they will not give their rivals any tickets.
In a statement on the club website from the board of directors, Bohs said that since Covid restrictions loosened, they have facilitated away supporters - but will not do so for the November 12 clash against the champions-elect.
They added that since stadiums were allowed up to 50% capacity, there have been away supporters at every Bohs game, home and away.
With the government announcing that stadiums hosting outdoor events can host a capacity crowd from this weekend, Waterford supporters visiting Dalymount Park will be allocated all of the Des Kelly Stand, the club added.
"Since restrictions eased to permit 50% capacity at outdoor sporting events, Bohemians have given every club we have hosted – Maynooth University Town, Finn Harps, Derry City and Dundalk – the allocation they have requested up to and including 50% of the Des Kelly Stand," the statement said.
"Similarly, now that 100% capacity returns this week, Waterford, Friday’s opposition in the Extra.ie FAI Cup semi-final, have been allocated the Des Kelly Stand in its entirety.
"Before permitted capacity went up to 50%, all clubs’ priorities were, of course, their own fans, in particular members and season ticket holders who remained loyal despite not knowing whether they would be able to attend a game this season.
"But Monday was the first Bohemians game – either home or away – that there were no away fans in attendance since the 50% permitted capacity was introduced, despite the Tallaght Stadium being able to hold more spectators than any of the other ground in the league.
"As a result of this decision, Bohemian FC can confirm that we do not intend to give Shamrock Rovers a ticket allocation when the sides meet at Dalymount Park in November," the statement concluded.
On the pitch, a goalkeeping error by stand-in Gypsies stopper Stephen Guinness handed 10-man Rovers a point as they march towards retaining the title.
