the way is clear for friendly games from 7 June followed 3 weeks later with the start of the 2021/22 Season.

As you will have seen from Monday’s message from the FAI the way is clear for friendly games from 7 June followed 3 weeks later with the start of the 2021/22 Season.

As in previous years the AUL proposes to start our League programme at the beginning of September.

To provide competitive football for our clubs in July and August we plan on starting the season with a League Cup/Shield competition for each division. This should provide each team with 6 competitive games before the leagues starts. Full details of the format of the competition will be announced in early June.

As we are starting the season slightly earlier this year could you please complete and return the League Application Form as soon as possible. The FAINet system will be available from 1 June to allow for the registration of players.

It is great news that we can finally get back to football. We believe that the league cup/shield competitions will provide competitive edge to the start of the leagues in September. Hopefully we will have an uninterrupted season.
