As the country settles into Level 5 restrictions we remind you of the protocols which we must adhere to under the current Government guidelines.


In particular, we would like to remind you of the following

  • Players of a school-going age – under 19 as per FAI guidelines – can continue to train but only with the club they are registered with
  • All training must be outdoor, non-contact and in pods of 15 and in compliance with the FAI’s Safer Return to Training Protocol
  • Players are not allowed to train with any representative side outside their club team
  • FAI affiliated clubs are urged not to allow non-FAI affiliated academies use their facilities at this time
  • For underage training - players/coaches/parents/guardians are permitted to travel more than 5 kilometres to attend an organised session
  • For underage training - players/coaches/parents/guardians are permitted to travel outside their resident county to attend an organised training session
  • In accordance with Government Level 5 guidelines, training is not permitted for non-elite adult teams
  • All domestic adult and underage football matches remain in cessation
  • Complaints in respect of any breaches of protocols will be referred to the Disciplinary Control Unit of the FAI


We are all in this together, so we thank you for your continued co-operation.

All Leagues and Clubs are also reminded that we have a dedicated email address for COVID-19 related queries – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
