Registrations & Transfer Update - Extension of Deadline

With the 2020/21 season suspended since mid-September and flexibility in timing required in order to ensure competitions can be played, the FAI have moved to address some of the issues that will arise from fixed transfer windows and registration dates.

The main change sees the closing date of the usual Dec-Jan transfer window deferred from Jan 31 until March 20. The final date for registration of new players remains March 31, for now at least.

The details are contained in a document which can be viewed by clicking on the following link:

We would stress that the new dates are under ongoing review and are quite likely to change depending on the course of the Covid-19 pandemic. A covering letter from FAI Chairman, Roy Barrett, was also issued with this information and can be viewed at this link:
