In light of last week’s easing of Covid-19 restrictions announcement by the Northern Ireland Executive (20 May), the Irish Football Association can confirm the following key points:
Spectators can return from today. There is a limit of 500 and to determine how many spectators can attend, a risk assessment must be carried out. Spectators should continue to adhere to regulations including social distancing
Limited use of changing facilities is permitted
Indoor squad training can take place
We continue to encourage everyone in the football family and beyond to practise good hand hygiene, social distancing and wear a face mask
The Irish FA also encourages all clubs to re-familiarise themselves with the document below: ‘A Return to the Everyday Game’. This can be viewed clicking on the tab below.
