Plans Confirmed For Muratti Day

For the first time, both the men's and women's Muratti finals will take place on the same day this year.

The matches are being held at Guernsey's Footes Lane on Saturday 13 May.

Jersey v Guernsey women will kick off at 10.30am.

That game will be followed by the 105th Muratti Vase Final at 3pm.

Hosts Guernsey will play the winner of this Saturday's (25 March) semi-final between Alderney and Jersey.

Gary Roberts, Guernsey FA Chief Executive, says this will be a special year for the competition:

"We all know how much ‘Muratti Day’ means to players, supporters, and everybody else involved. By holding both matches on the same day, we are hoping to create a great atmosphere.

Everybody knows of the history attached to the Men’s competition, but we cannot ignore the growth in the Women’s game, which is now making its own history and will only continue growing from strength to strength. We hope that the Guernsey community will support both matches and help create a memorable day for football.”

Tickets for the women's game are £5.  It's £10 (general admission) or £15 (seat) to attend both games.

More details - including when tickets will go on sale - will be announced in April.
