The game will take place at 8 pm (UK) and ticketing details and allocations will be released in due course as the final arrangements are made.

"Irish FA CEO, Patrick Nelson, said: “We have kept in close contact with our partners at UEFA on the matter and following these discussions we are delighted that they have confirmed that the game will stay in Belfast.”
