Finn Harps kick-off their home games in the 2019 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division this Friday against champions Dundalk.

It's a tough opener for Harps.

But the club is hoping that the Ballybofey venue will be rocking for the big occasion.

Back in 2016, Harps - who had just been promoted - won their first game back in the big time as they overcame Derry City 2-1 before a crowd of around 4,400.

The club is hoping the Donegal soccer-loving public will turn out in big numbers to support the team.
