FAI Pushes AGM Back to September

The FAI has pushed back its AGM from the originally scheduled date of July 25th in Galway to September.

Roy Barrett, Chairperson of the Board of the Association, advised members of the Senior Council of the FAI and AGM members by letter over the weekend.

The AGM has been rescheduled in line with COVID-19 restrictions and will also allow for the newly appointed external auditors Grant Thornton to prepare accounts.

Council members have also been informed that an EGM will be held in the near future to vote on the required changes to the FAI Rule Book and Constitution as the FAI pushes on with governance reform.

In the letter from the Chairperson, council members have also been informed that the FAI is now seeking further financial assistance to ensure the continued viability of the Association.

This support has been sought along with other national sporting organisations who have also been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The outgoing Government secured a €70 million overall package of which €40 million has been set aside for distribution between the major field sports of Soccer, rugby and Gaelic Games to mitigate the substantial loss of revenue they have each suffered.
