The Football Association of Ireland today announces an extension to the cessation of all football under its jurisdiction until April 19th inclusive, following directives from Government, the Department of Health and UEFA.
The decision to extend a deadline for the return to football has been taken in light of the ever-growing threat posed by the COVID-19 outbreak and in the best interests of our players, coaches, volunteers, supporters and staff. This decision will continue to be monitored on an ongoing basis.
