The FAI saga continues today with Kieran Mulvey and John Treacy of Sport Ireland and Ministers Shane Ross and Brendan Griffin appearing before the Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport.
Watch live with us here from Committee Room 4.
Breaking news that Deloitte have written to the Companies Registration Office to say that The FAI is in breach of two regulations regarding the keeping of records.
“Events since last Wednesday have been disappointing. I have become increasingly concerned,” said Minister Shane Ross.
“There is a need for regime change. The FAI have written this morning stating that Mazars will be independent and forensic in their approach.”
Recommendations of the various reports will be put to AGM in July. At that point the existing Board will step down to facilitate the constitution of a new board.
“No new capital payments will be made to FAI until corporate governance matters have been resolved,” said Minister Ross
“The new board should have representatives from Players, men and women, coaches, volunteers, teams and leagues.”
“This is a crisis for the FAI but it is also n opportunity to create a new vision for the sport.”
Minister Griffin has said that local clubs will not be penalised for the actions of the National Governing Body. There will however be no payments made directly to the FAI.
