FAI Outlines Medical Side of Return to Action

The FAI’s Medical Director, Dr Alan Byrne has outlined to FAI TV how the pathway for a safer return to football will work for the SSE Airtricity League, Women’s National League, adult amateur and underage football along with all other FAI affiliates.

Byrne is a member of the new Government Expert Group advising on return to action protocols.

In the course of an in-depth interview with Cathal Dervan on the Association’s own media channel, he discusses the roadmap for football’s safer return in a manner that will satisfy the requirements of all Government agencies, including the HSE and the Department of Health, and UEFA.

Byrne is currently finalising Return to Training and Return to Football protocols which will be presented to the ‘Return to Sport’ body later this week.

You can look back on his interview here.
