FAI Postpone Underage National Leagues
Following discussions with Government agencies today, and in the interests of public health, the FAI have postponed all elite underage football matches this weekend as we await the outcome of the upcoming Cabinet meeting.
This decision will see all fixtures in all five underage National Leagues, SSE Airtricity underage leagues and Women's National U-17 League, postponed with all other elite underage football games also suspended.
As with adult amateur and underage grassroots football, all underage elite teams can continue to train in a non-contact environment and in pods of 15, subject to current Government guidelines.
The FAI will review this postponement internally and with Government early next week. The health and safety of all players, coaching staff, match officials, volunteers, parents/guardians and supporters remains foremost in all FAI decisions.
