Irish FA statement re: arbitration referral from Glentoran FC

The Irish FA can confirm that an arbitration referral from Glentoran FC has been received today. 

The referral comes after the Irish FA’s Appeals Board dismissed an appeal by Glentoran against the decision of the Irish FA Challenge Cup Committee to uphold a protest lodged by Newry City AFC.

It means the second semi-final in this season’s Samuel Gelston’s Whiskey Irish Cup (Newry City/Glentoran v Ballymena United) will now not be played on Wednesday 13 April as was provisionally scheduled.

The Irish FA will communicate the arrangements for the outstanding semi-final tie when a timeline for arbitration has been determined.
