UCFL Committed to Completing 2019/20 Season

It is encouraging that as of now, “the UCFL remain committed to completing the 2019/20 season, between Aug 28 and Oct 16, with the 2020/21 season to begin shortly after the latter date”.

However, the question has to be asked of the FAI and/or the FAI’s steering group: “why have you not followed NPHET’s and the Government’s timeline for a return to football”?

Update 15th May: FAI announce pathway for a safer return to football


“The cessation of all football under the jurisdiction of the FAI is extended to July 20th with the exception of SSE Airtricity League clubs ….

The advice to clubs is not to return to training when we enter Phase One of the Government Roadmap on Monday, May 18th, not to open their grounds and pitches, even to groups of four, and not to consider collective training or playing football until the medical evidence suggests otherwise.

The cessation of all football activities under the jurisdiction of the FAI is extended to July 20th (with some Airtricity League exceptions).  All adult amateur and underage clubs can begin their return to training programmes from Monday July 20th, subject to FAI protocols to be agreed with Government agencies.

Clubs can return to full collective training from Monday August 10th.  Clubs can return to playing from Friday August 28th.

Winter Leagues (e.g. UCFL) wishing to complete their 2019/20 season will be given the option of applying to the FAI, via their affiliates, for an extension to their season until Sunday October 11th”.
