Affiliations and Inter Club Sparring

Dear members,

Please be advised that following a Central Council meeting on 16th July, the affiliation process for the new boxing season will only occur online. Instructional videos will be issued to help clubs navigate the process. If clubs still require help, they are asked to write to the National Secretary who will arrange assistance.

With Covid-19 case numbers rising throughout the country, we in the IABA must be proactive in helping to curb the spread of the virus and hence no physical forms or cash payments will be used. 

Also, please be advised that ‘Inter-club sparring’ is currently not allowed. With the Covid case numbers starting to rise again, we within the boxing community must play our part and try to mitigate the potential spread of the virus.

This means that sparring can only take place between members of the same club. 

Kind regards,

Paddy Gallagher

National Secretary
