FC IOM set play Guernsey FC in first ever match

Historic fixture to be played in front of home crowd

FC IOM will make history in front of a home crowd next month as they play their first ever fixture.

The new club is set to take on Guernsey FC at the Bowl on 15 August.

The Manx side was recently given approval to compete in the North West Counties Football League for the 2020/21 season.

It follows in the footsteps of Guernsey, which became the first offshore club to apply and compete in the FA National league System.

Kick off for the match is at 6:30pm, information on tickets will be released by FC IOM in the coming days on the club's website.
