Matthew Devaney, President of Bohemians spoke with Bohemians media team on the announcement: “I would like to thank Ambassador Abdalmajid for her efforts in enabling this fixture and look forward to welcoming her and officials from the Palestinian FA to Dalymount Park and to hopefully raise a substantial sum to assist people in a truly dire situation”.

Ken Kiernan, Bohemians FC women’s team manager said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to play this fixture. It will be great for our group to play at such an occasion, in what should be a sold out Dalymount Park, and to test ourselves against women from another part of the world.”
