Irish FA statement on NIFL Premiership Management Committee meeting

Irish FA chief executive Patrick Nelson and chief operating officer Sean Murphy were invited to join the NIFL Premiership Management Committee meeting this evening and have released the following statement: 

“We welcomed the opportunity to discuss how the Irish FA has responded since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and how we have strived to support and protect football in Northern Ireland at all levels.

“This included sharing insight with the Northern Ireland Executive around ensuring football is included in the different financial support schemes available. 

“We agreed the health and wellbeing of participants is the most important aspect of any plans to return to training and competitive fixtures and that they must be signed off by our own medical advisers and those from the government.”
