Limerick FC confirm financial backing of  "local consortium" for 2019 season

LIMERICK FC have confirmed that the club have secured financial backing for the 2019 SSE Airtricity League season.

"Limerick FC are pleased to announce that a local consortium have committed to financially supporting the club throughout the 2019 season," confirmed the senior soccer club.

"This support is to ensure financial stability going forward and to prepare the club for a mutually agreeable take over at the end of 2019," added the brief statement this Monday evening.

The news comes less than two weeks ahead of the start of the new season - The Super Blues playing in the First Division after relegation for Tommy Barrett's side last season.
