Irish supporters group You Boys in Green (YBIG) will extend a friendly welcome to Polish fans for the upcoming friendly between Ireland and Poland at Lansdowne Road on February 6th.


The welcome Irish fans got from our Polish hosts during Euro 2012, from Poznan, Gdansk, Torun and beyond was a very special one, and for many fans it was the abiding memory of the tournament. With a large away support expected for the game, YBIG would like to invite Polish and Irish fans to meet up before and after the match.


Prior to the game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, YBIG will play Polish fans in a friendly match at Irishtown Stadium, Ringsend, in conjunction with the FAI as part of their Gathering Event.


And after that fans’ match, supporters from Ireland and Poland will meet in Scruffy Murphy’s, and after the game in Doyle’s Bar.


David Byrne from YBIG said. “It’s safe to say that the Euro’s will not be remembered for the football we played, but the friendships and hospitality we received from the Poles, we hope that both sets of fans can meet up next week and help forge stronger links between both countries.”

About YBIG

Established in 2005, YBIG has become the number one voice for Irish supporters. We have produced 27 fanzines, which were distributed to the fans on international match days. In November 2011, our first YBIG issue was given away through our YBIG media partners The Irish Daily Star in a new A4 size.

YBIG has been the driving force behind various fans’ initiatives, such as the ‘Testimonial for Dave Langan Dinner’, which raised nearly €67,000 for the former international star.

The ‘Going Green’ for our last two play-off matches with France and Estonia, which received massive nationwide media exposure was also the brainchild of YBIG.

YBIG, in conjunction with the FAI, also run the very successful ‘Singing Section’ in Lansdowne Road adding colour and noise from our 1000 Singing Section attendees.

The YBIG forum – – has thousands of Irish members using the  site to arrange Ireland tickets, away game travel and accommodation and much more.
