Coronavirus: Statement from Northern Ireland Football League

Thu, 12/03/2020 - 23:28

Statement from NIFL on this Saturday's Danske Bank Premiership programme:

"The NI Football League, as part of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) response group set up in light of the outbreak by the Irish FA, continues to actively monitor UK government advice and encourages clubs to do likewise.

At this stage all scheduled fixtures under the jurisdiction of the NI Football League will continue to take place as scheduled in line with the latest UK government advice unless, operationally, it becomes untenable to do so.

We have been in communication with Derry City & Strabane District Council regarding the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium. We will provide a further update tomorrow regarding the arrangements for the Institute v Cliftonville fixture. As previously announced the game between Linfield and Larne (14 March) has also be postponed.

The NI Football League will continue to monitor government guidance and work with relevant stakeholders to further develop contingency plans to ensure the League is best placed to act as and when any potential restrictions may come into force.

These matters are, of course, subject to change and we will update as appropriate".
