The Joint Committee on Transport, Tourism & Sport will meet tomorrow, Wednesday, at 11am in Committee Room 2, Leinster House to discuss matters related to the FAI.

This will be the fourth specific meeting at which matters related to the FAI will be discussed and this meeting comes ahead of the FAI AGM in Trim, Co Meath on Saturday week, July 27.

The Governance Review Group, a joint partnership initiative agreed between the Football Association of Ireland and Sport Ireland, has published its report and made a total of 78 recommendations to improve governance at the governing body for football in Ireland.

The Group was established to review the existing governance arrangements within the FAI and to consider and propose a governance framework for the FAI which will support the Board of the FAI and the organisation in achieving and observing good governance practice.

Ahead of the meeting, the Chairman of the Joint Committee, Committee Chairman Fergus O’Dowd TD, said: “The Committee welcomed the publication of the report which followed on from the work of the Committee members who helped to shine a light on governance within the FAI, and members will have questions and observations which we will put to the members of the Governance Review Group.”
