Football in the IoM suspended

All fixtures, friendlies and training called off

Football in the Isle of Man has been suspended until further notice.

This includes all senior and junior league and cup fixtures, friendly matches and training.

The Centre of Excellence and Walking Football sessions are also all suspended.

The Isle of Man FA is is affiliated to its English counterpart - which has suspended all grassroots football activity - and it is therefore considered the most prudent course of action is to put the current season on hold.

The FA says its decision has not been taken lightly but the situation currently being faced is unprecedented and the FA recognises there is a social responsibility to place the health and wellbeing of the community at the forefront of any decision making.

A statement issued says the Isle of Man FA will put out updates and further information via its website and social media accounts when any becomes available.
