THE FAI, IRFU and GAA will work together to prepare a submission for government on the safe return of supporters to stadiums in Ireland. 

Representatives from the three largest sports governing bodies in the country met today.

Sport has been without spectators since restrictions were tightened some weeks ago.

The associations say they will reconvene early next week “following the publication of the government’s new roadmap for living with Covid-19.

“This meeting will consider how the three governing bodies move forward together,” a statement reads.

The FAI, GAA and IRFU intend to make a joint submission to government on how fans can again take their seats at Croke Park, the Aviva Stadium and other grounds throughout the country.

A new plan on how we can live with the pandemic in the medium term is expected to be published next week.

Under the previous roadmap, attendance numbers at outdoor gatherings were increased to 500, before that was reduced to 15, effectively moving sport in this country back behind closed doors.
