Sanctioning Of Friendly Games
07/08/2019

In relation to friendly matches, which are a major feature of pre-season preparations at this time of year, clubs are reminded of FAI Rules of the Association, Part C), Rule 34.3, which requires that these games be sanctioned.

Part C), Rule 34.3 reads as follows: “Domestic friendly matches, including but not limited to tournaments and trial matches, must be sanctioned by the League of the hosting team”.

The full FAI Rules can be viewed via the following link:

The home team should take responsibility for obtaining sanction for a friendly game and, in the case of a UCFL team, this involves contacting the UCFL Hon Sec, Paraic Treanor (paraic.treanor@ucfl.ie), as far in advance as possible, requesting the UCFL’s sanction for the fixture.
