Ireland v Latvia: Day, time and TV info for first match of 2023

Ireland v Latvia: TV info.

Ireland face Latvia in an international friendly this week, and the match will be broadcast live on TV.

The game against the Latvians will be the final opportunity for Stephen Kenny to get his house in order before the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign kicks off against France on March 27th.

Here’s everything you need to know about watching Ireland v Latvia on TV.

When does Ireland v Latvia take place?

Ireland host Latvia at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday March 22nd, with kick-off pencilled in for 7.45pm.

How can I watch the match on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on RTE 2, with coverage beginning at 7pm.

It will also be available to watch on Premier Sports 1, which is part of the ‘Sports Extra’ pack that also contains BT Sport channels. Existing Sky Sports customers can add Sports Extra for €10 a month for six months.

For Sky TV customers who do not have Sky Sports, Sports Extra costs €17 a month for the first six months and €34 a month thereafter.

Premier Sports is also available on a NOW TV Sports Extra Day or Month Membership.

What is the team news?

Kenny confirmed his 26-man squad for the Latvia and France games last week, with Mikey Johnston included for the first time.

There are also returns for Adam Idah, Andrew Omobamidele and Jason Knight, but Shane Duffy and Enda Stevens miss out through injury.

Ireland supporters will be keen to get a look at Evan Ferguson from the start, and Kenny may use the game as an opportunity to try out the in-form teenager ahead of the more important France test.

However, with the Brighton forward and John Egan both having come through FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday, the manager may just manage their minutes due to the quick turnaround.
