Dear Members,

Following, the correspondence issued on 20/03/20 by the Board of Directors of the IABA. Please be advised that the cancellation of all boxing activities for affiliated bodies within the IABA due to Coronavirus Covid-19, has now been extended to at least the 19th April 2020.

This decision was taken in line with Government and HSE advice and has been implemented to help safeguard the wellbeing of our members, our communities and our Country.

For clarity, this includes all organised training (indoor or outdoor) and any other boxing related events.

The previous Board directive stating there will be no championships or competition allowed to take place at club, county, provincial or national level until at least June 2020 remains in place. However, this timeline may too be extended.

The Board of the IABA will continue to monitor the situation and follow the guidance issued by the HSE and other applicable governmental departments. We encourage all members to do likewise (please see links below):

Members who have specific concerns relating to the coronavirus should contact the HSE helpline to seek further advice/guidance Tel: 1850 24 1850 or in Northern Ireland contact Tel: 111.

The Board would like to thank all of our members for the concern they have shown for their communities in abiding by these directives.

Yours Sincerely,

Board of Directors, IABA.
