Board of Dundalk place club's long term lease up for sale

Lilywhites board have invited interested parties to make a purchase of the club's long-term lease and property
The board of Dundalk Football Club has today issued an invitation to interested parties to buy the long-term lease and property of the Louth club.

The Airtricity League Premier Division side finds itself in severe financial difficulties and measures are being taken to ensure the club's survival.

A statement on the club's official website reads: "Dundalk FC is inviting interested parties to contact the club either in writing or in person in relation to the Sale of the Club’s Long Term Lease."

Included with the club is the newly-constructed 46,000 square foot youth development centre and the four-acre Hiney Park grounds.

The announcement follows recent developments at Oriel Park surrounding the financial instability of the club.

The Dundalk board had previously issued a plea for help to local and national businesses, but with no offers forthcoming, the board confirmed that the financial well-being of the club is quickly deteriorating.

The Lilywhite supporters have also convened a meeting which will take place tonight July 10 at Oriel Park, in which to discuss possible fundraising initiatives.

Dundalk currently lie in tenth position in the league with 12 points from 15 games.
