Ireland’s FA welcomes UEFA delegation

The Football Association has stopped receiving government funding after recent revelations against former chief executive John Delaney.

The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) will receive the visit of a UEFA delegation to try to sort things out in the crisis the FA is living.

The Irish government stopped funding to the FA after it was discovered some problems with the institution’s governance and its former chief executive John Delaney.

“Our UEFA colleagues are here to offer their support and insight to the Governance Review Group as we work together to improve Irish football,” interim CEO Rea Walshe told The 42.

No, UEFA didn’t invite Argentina to play the Nations League

The rumor started on Fox Sports Argentina and rapidly gained traction all over the world, but the European governing body has denied the reports.

“Their visit is welcome. The experience and expertise within Uefa will offer real benefit to the Group as we work towards an initial report in June. They are here to help and the support from Uefa is welcomed by the FAI.”

Sport Ireland CEO John Treacy added: “The terms of reference of the Governance Review Group confirm that the views of Uefa are a key constituent and their input will be of real significance as the Group works towards putting forward recommendations for a new structure.”

“This visit to Dublin by Uefa is a significant show of support to the work being carried out by the Group and we look forward to a productive meeting with them and a strong working relationship going forward.”
