Derry City F.C. is likely to be without a stadium for the final three months of the 2016 SSE Airtricity League of Ireland season.

The laying of a new 3G football pitch will commence in August 2016 and is expected to be completed by December 2016. Should this timetable proceed as planned then Derry City F.C. would have to find an alternative venue for home games from August 2016 until the end of the season.

Institute F.C.’s Riverside Stadium in Drumahoe and Finn Harps’ Finn Park in Ballybofey, have both been mooted as possible venues.

The construction of a new greyhound track will commence in July 2016 and is expected to be finished by December 2016.

The construction of a new stand at Brandywell Stadium will start in September 2016 and it is anticipated that it will be completed by March 2017.

The SSE Airtricity League of Ireland season runs from March and finishes in November.
