The FAI today announced that the 2020 Women’s National League will re-commence on the weekend ending June 28th. The league was due to start two weeks ago with Limerick outfit Treaty United due to begin their campaign with a home fixture against Wexford last Sunday at the Markets Field.
If the league does begin on schedule in June, which will be one week after the re-start of the men’s Airtricity League season, it will finish on the 13th of December.
A full FAI statement read;
“The 2020 season will now commence a week after the scheduled return of the SSE Airticity League, and the Women’s National League will finish on the weekend ending December 13.
“The league will be played over two rounds of fixtures, 16 games per team, with the FAI Women’s Cup to run in tandem with the league season. The League Cup will be deferred for this season.
The decision was taken in the light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the FAI remains committed to all guidelines issued by the Government and the Department of Health.”
Treaty United are the only senior representative side in Limerick this season and committed members Dave Rooney and Irene Hehir were heavily involved in ensuring that women’s football would continue following a turbulent few months.
