BREAKING: Energia Community Series suspended indefinitely

The Energia Community Series is suspended in all four provinces with immediate effect until further notice.

This is a result of the Government of Ireland removing the exemption for club championship matches from Level 3 of their Plan for Living with COVID-19.

Therefore, the Energia Community Series is no longer exempt from Level 3 training and match restrictions.

All clubs in Level 3 and Level 4 areas are now restricted to “Non contact training only in pods of up to 15.”

The Northern Ireland Executive have advised that from Friday October 16th, no “organised contact sport involving household mixing other than at elite level” can take place. Amateur club rugby is not classified as an elite sport under this regulation.

Further clarity is being sought on the Northern Ireland Executive’s new measures to define what training is permitted for clubs and schools from October 16th. An update will be provided in due course.

Irish Rugby supports all public health measures which keep our community safe and urges all its members to demonstrate safe and responsible behaviour.

Clubs in all provinces are also reminded of the need to have an updated COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan in place which ensures all activities comply with government guidelines.

The IRFU with the four provinces will deliver strategic support to clubs in the coming weeks to help them make the most of non-contact training for the purposes of wellbeing, fitness and skill development.
