Shelbourne hope to break their attendance record on Saturday, before departing for their Women's Champions League qualifiers in Slovenia next week.

Noel King's side host rock bottom Treaty United, as the champions, currently five points clear, look to extend their lead at the top of the Women's National League.

Star signing and 231-cap former USA international Heather O'Reilly is set to make her second home appearance.

The World Cup winner provided an assist in Shels 3-2 FAI Cup quarter-final win over Peamount last weekend.

The Drumcondra side face Slovenia's ZNK Pomurje in the round-one semi-final next Thursday, with the final set for August 21. Shelbourne last featured in the Champions League in 2017.

The Reds have reduced ticket prices to €5 for adults, while U-16s are free of charge for the league clash.

"Shelbourne FC is inviting people from all across Dublin to join us this weekend at Tolka Park and show their support for women’s football," the club said.

"We'd like to encourage underage teams from across the city to join us on what promises to be a memorable day for Irish women’s football.

Shelbourne extend an invitation to supporters of all affiliations and none to join us at Tolka Park this Saturday for the WNL game with Treaty United (2.0)."
