Shamrock Rovers make history...

   The Shamrock Rovers became the first club from the League of Ireland (LOI) to advance to the group stage of the Europa League. Here are the highlights...

This is great for the Rover but also great for the league itself. The Rovers will earn 1Million and more $ to come with more TV exposure. Any League club that will have the exposure of the Group Games will also reflect well on the League.

The group The Rovers were placed in will be against
  1. England (Totterham Hotspurs)
  2. Russia (Rubin Kazan)
  3. Greece (PAOK)
  4. Ireland (Shamrock Rovers).
These games will be broadcasted through out Europe. Exposure like this to a League of Ireland club is great for the league.

The League finally gets some love from the Independent noting the dramatic and historic game.
