Rep. Of Ireland Will Hold Matches Behind Closed Doors If Staged At Lansdowne Road

Stephen Kenny's first competitive game in charge is set to be against Bulgaria on September 3rd. 

The Republic of Ireland are set to hold matches behind closed doors if and when they are staged at Lansdowne Road this year. 

Stephen Kenny's first competitive game in charge is set to be against Bulgaria on September 3rd. 

It's believed FIFA and UEFA could end up freeing up the fixture calendar for clubs in September and October, which would mean the Boys in Green would have a run of at least 7 games, including the Euro 2020 play off, in November and December. 

The FAI will be expected to have a road map ready for League of Ireland clubs by next week over a potential return to action.

It's understood tackling will be banned, pitches disinfected and players limited to groups of five when the first phase of Premier League training resumes.

Captains, senior players and managers will be briefed on the medical aspect of 'Project Restart' today.
