Limerick FC will host UCD on the opening day of the SSE Airtricity League First Division season at the Markets Field on Saturday 5 March (kick-off 6.30pm), after the fixtures were released on Thursday afternoon.
The other six teams will begin their campaign on the Friday evening but the Blues must wait until the following night when Martin Russell and a number of his players will clash with their former club, with whom Russell won the First Division title in 2009.
Limerick’s first away trip comes the following Friday, 11 March, when they travel to Waterford United with kick-off 7.45pm at the RSC.
The Shannonsiders’ last home game of the campaign comes on the penultimate weekend when they welcome Drogheda United on Saturday 8 October (6.30pm), with the final day seeing them travel to Cabinteely seven days later (Stradbrook, 7.45pm).
