IRELAND’S UEFA NATIONS League fixture away to Ukraine will be held in the Polish city of Łódź. 

Ireland host Ukraine in Dublin on 8 June, with the venue for the return game mired in uncertainty since the Russian invasion. The Ukraine FA have today confirmed that the game with Ireland on 14 June – along with their clash with Armenia on 11 June – will be staged at the 18,000-capacity Stadion Krola in Lodz, a city 120km from Warsaw. 

“The Ukrainian national team will play two home matches in the League of Nations 2022/2023 against Armenia (June 11) and Ireland (June 14) at the Municipal Stadium of the LKS (accommodating 18,000 spectators) in the Polish city of Lodz”, read a statement by the Ukraine FA. 

Ireland’s Nations League campaign opens with a trip to Yerevan to face Armenia on 4 June, which is followed by consecutive home games against Ukraine and Scotland on 8 and 11 June. 

Ukraine’s postponed World Cup play-off semi-final against Scotland will take place on 2 June, which will be followed by the play-off decider against Wales on 5 June.
