FOOTBALL ACTIVITY SUSPENDED UNTIL MARCH 29

Bohemians v Shelbourne - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

The FAI has today confirmed ‘the cessation of all football under its jurisdiction until March 29 inclusive’ in line with advice from the Government, the Department of Health and Uefa in respect of efforts to contain the spread of the Covid-19.

This affects three Bohemians fixtures, our away fixture to Cork City tomorrow, our home game against Dundalk next Friday and our away trip to Finn Harps on March 27.

It also affects all underage and WNL fixtures up to and including March 29. The situation thereafter will remain under review by the FAI in conjunction with the relevant state authorities.

Any tickets purchased for our March 20 home game against Dundalk will remain valid when an alternative date is found.

However if supporters would instead prefer for their order cancelled and refunded, they are advised to contact tickets@bohemians.ie.

Today’s FAI statement read:

The Football Association of Ireland announces the cessation of all football under its jurisdiction until March 29 inclusive, and with immediate effect following directives from Government, the Department of Health and UEFA.

The FAI made this decision after a meeting in Dublin today with Government, the Department of Health and stakeholders from other national sporting bodies.

The decision has been taken in light of the growing threat posed by the COVID-19 outbreak and in the best interests of our players, coaches, volunteers, supporters and staff. This decision will be monitored on an ongoing basis.

The FAI again met with representatives from the National League Executive Committee and the Professional Footballer’s Association of Ireland today, and continues to work with both bodies to help our clubs and players through this difficult time.

The FAI remains in communication with the Department of Health and UEFA on COVID-19 and will continue to follow all government guidelines.
