The Football Association of Ireland has confirmed that they held a ‘productive’ meeting with all 19 League of Ireland clubs this afternoon.

The association met with clubs this afternoon to discuss how a proposed return to League of Ireland football may look in the coming months and weeks ahead.

“The Football Association of Ireland today held a productive meeting with the 19 SSE Airtricity League clubs to discuss the return to action for the League,” a statement read this evening.

“Talks will continue over the weekend. The FAI will make no further comment until these talks are concluded.”

The meeting comes just a day after it was confirmed that all four clubs who are due to take part in a behind closed tournament – Bohemians, Derry City, Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers – have reported no positive Covid-19 cases in the latest round of testing.
