The Irish FA can confirm plans are being finalised to allow approximately 500 spectators to attend the Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Cup final at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on Friday 31 July.
The association is working closely with the clubs remaining in the competition regarding the allocation of tickets both to players’ families and a small number of additional supporters.
The development is in line with the Northern Ireland Executive’s continued journey towards easing lockdown where it has stated supporters can attend outdoor sporting events "where the operator can control access and ensure adherence to social distancing".
Irish FA CEO Patrick Nelson said: “Safety is paramount. We will work to ensure all guidelines are followed and liaise closely with the clubs involved to ensure tickets are distributed responsibly and that those inside the stadium adhere to social distancing at all times.
“We will continue to work with clubs and leagues to interpret what the NI Executive guidelines mean for the game at all levels.”
