SSE Airtricity Leagues Will Resume In July

Athlone Town's first game back could take place on Friday the 31st.

The National League Executive Committee has ruled that the SSE Airtricity League will resume from July 31st with two rounds of matches in total.

It will include games played to date, and promotion and relegation as scheduled at the start of the 2020 season.

One club will be automatically promoted to the Premier Division from the First Division, with one club automatically relegated.

There'll be a Play-Off  between the ninth placed Premier Division club and the winner of the First Division play-off series involving the teams that finish 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.

The winner of the Play-Off will play in the Premier Division of the SSE Airtricity League in the 2021 season.

This decision has been sent to the board of the FAI for ratification. 

Athlone Town returned to training last Wednesday with a view to the completion of the first division season. 

They've played just two games to far in the 2020 campaign losing both. 

But manager Adrian Carbury will be hopeful of an improved run from his youthful side when proceedings resume.
