STATEMENT: Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland Update
Regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) and schoolboy football activities:
Dear Secretary,
Further to confirmation today that all schools across the country will
close until at least March 29th 2020, and as the situation with Covid-19
is developing rapidly, the SFAI has taken the following decision.
The Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland is instructing all SFAI
affiliated schoolboy leagues to suspend all football activities with
immediate effect until further notice.
We understand the decision will bring with it disruption to leagues,
clubs, coaches and players, but in these extraordinary times, there is a
need to act now.
Further communications will issue in due course, but for now, please
follow the advice of the HSE and the Government when it comes to
further protective measures.
Simon Walsh
SFAI Administrator
