FAI To Review Markets Field Incident

The Football Association of Ireland will review arrangements around the SSE Airtricity First Division Play-Off Final at Markets Field in Limerick following the relocation of a section of the Waterford FC supporters in the first half of the game.

Local Gardaí and Stadium Event Management issued instructions for Waterford FC fans to leave the Away Stand of the ground after a structural issue developed affecting a section of the floor in the middle of the stand.

The FAI thanks Gardaí and Stadium Event Management for their swift response and the Waterford FC supporters for their immediate cooperation.

The matter will now be the subject of an FAI review which will include consultation with all parties.
