Dublin football club Bohemians has announced a friendly match against Palestine.

The historic game between the Bohemians women’s team and the Palestinian women’s team will be played in Dalymount Park, on May 15.

The match will mark the 76th anniversary of Nakba, the forced mass displacement of Palestinians.

It's also intended to shed light on the human rights situation in occupied Palestine.

The funds raised through the match will be used to facilitate the visit of the Palestinian football team as well as provide funds for humanitarian relief efforts in Palestine.

In a statement Bohemian F.C said:

"We hope that this game can highlight the positive power of football and raise significant funds to further support humanitarian efforts in Palestine, as well as covering costs for the women’s team to travel to Ireland. We will be announcing a series of events around the game in due course, as well as ticketing information, and hope to see a sold out Dalymount Park in solidarity with the women of the Palestinian national team and their nation."
