FAI Interim CEO Gary Owens says next year’s finances are based on no fans being allowed attend games.
The association was saved from insolvency last night.
A comfortable majority voted in favour of the governance reforms required to secure 35 million euro of government funding.
However, Owens says the FAI’s financial state remains fragile and hasn’t ruled out a rebrand.
Independent chairperson Roy Barrett says “in his mind there is no issue around the fact he was recommended for his role by the chairperson of Bank of Ireland, Patrick Kennedy”.
