Latest News and updates


Due to the ongoing Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions in place for the rest of the month, the WDSL Committee have decided that the forthcoming season will begin in mid to late January 2021, if safe to do so. We wish all clubs, players, coaches, parents and managers the very best in these uncertain times and hope to see you all at the pitches in the new year. Keep washing those hands!


Following clarification from Government today, the FAI confirms the following Level 5 guidelines for football will come into effect from midnight tonight but please be aware these are the latest directives and subject to change:

21st Oct 2020

All underage club teams from Under-19 age group down are permitted to train outdoors during Level 5 restrictions.

All outdoor training for underage players is to be non-contact in pods of no more than 15 and in compliance with the latest Government guidelines.

For underage training - players/coaches/parents/guardians are permitted to travel more than 5 kilometres to attend an organised training session.

For underage training - players/coaches/parents/guardians are permitted to travel outside their resident county to attend an organised training session.

SSE Airtricity Premier Division and First Division and Women’s National League matches and training continue.

All other domestic adult and underage football matches remain in cessation.

In accordance with Government Level 5 guidelines, training is not permitted for non-elite adult teams.

The FAI will continue to talk to Government and will monitor any changes to Level 5 restrictions. We will update these guidelines as required and as soon as possible.

I am now delighted to be in a position to have organised an online PDP 1 coaching course for Thursday 5th November & Monday 9th November from 6:00pm - 9:30pm on both evenings.
