FAI implement pay deferrals as a result of COVID-19 shutdown

The FAI have announced tiered wage deferrals of staff due to the continued shutdown of football across the country as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Staff were informed on Tuesday morning that those earning about €25,000 would be subject to a sliding scale of between 10% and 50% reduction on their income.

A statement claims "senior staff impacted by the biggest deferrals".

They say a review of the situation will take place at the end of April "as the Association comes to terms with the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic".

Interim FAI C.E.O. Gary Owens told FAI.ie, “Like the rest of the country, the FAI is now feeling the full financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our projected income streams in these exceptional circumstances.

“The financial challenges faced by the Association are such now that we have been left with no choice but to implement these pay deferrals on an equitable basis. Those who are paid the most by the FAI will take the largest deferrals.

“This difficult decision has been taken to protect the viability of the Association and the future for our staff. Like other national governing bodies who have taken such measures, we will explore all avenues to help us through this crisis.

“We thank our employees for their understanding at this difficult time for everybody in Ireland. Their commitment to our game and the Association has been limitless over a very difficult 12 months and I know they will continue to deliver for Irish football in the wake of these latest challenges.”
