Longford Town FC are away to Dundalk in the first round of the 2022 FAI Cup as Gary Cronin's side make the trip to Oriel Park for this extremely difficult task at the end of July. 

The clubs clashed at the same venue in the semi-final of 2015 FAI Cup with Dundalk, then managed by former Longford Town boss Stephen Kenny, winning 2-0 on their way to capturing the prestigious trophy. 

The draws took place on Tuesday for the first round of the 2022 FAI Women’s Cup and the FAI Men’s Cup, the first time both draws have been held together.

As part of the first round draw, the FAI have confirmed the dates for the two finals with the final for the FAI Women's Cup set for Sunday, November 6, with kick-off at 3pm at Tallaght Stadium. The FAI Men's Cup final will take place a week later on Sunday, November 13, with kick-off at 3pm at the Aviva Stadium.

Tickets are now available to purchase on Ticketmaster for both finals. Tickets are priced at €20 for adults & €10 for children for the FAI Men's Cup final and €10 for adults & €5 for children for the FAI Women's Cup final, with discounts available for FAI Season Ticket Holders. A special club/school offer will also be in place for both finals with two complimentary adult tickets for each 10 U-16 tickets purchased as we aim for record attendances for both finals.

It was also announced that as part of the No Referee, No Game campaign, all sides competing in the first round of the FAI Men's Cup and the FAI Women's Cup will perform a guard of honour for their match officials ahead of kick-off. FAI Men's Cup First Round Draw
