FC Isle of Man will be taking on Guernsey FC in the club's first game since gaining official affiliation status.

The match will take place at the Bowl at 6:30pm on Saturday 15th August.

Members of the club are particularly pleased with their first choice of opponents as it was Guernsey FC who inspired FC Isle of Man to establish their own club.

Earlier in the week, the club unveiled its kit which was chosen by the supporters of the club through an online vote.

After a ten-day voting period it was announced the first option was the favourite choice, garnering 55% of the vote.

Paul Jones, Director of Football at FC Isle of Man has been pleased with progress.

The match has been made possible due to the air bridge that connects both the Isle of Man and Guernsey.

Both islands have no cases of coronavirus, meaning residents of both islands can fly unrestricted between the two crown dependencies.
