Dear Clubs, County Boards and Provincial Councils.

The IABA Board of Directors met again today via teleconference and agreed that the cancellation of all boxing activities for affiliated bodies within the IABA will stay in place until (at the earliest) August 10th 2020.  This timeline is in line with the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society & Business and will be reviewed in line with further Government and HSE guidance.

For clarity, this includes all championships, competition, organised training (indoor or outdoor) and any other boxing related events. As such no insurance covers of IABA, for Provinces, County Boards, Clubs and individuals are operational during this period. IABA insurance re personal accident, covers affiliated members who are injured as a result of an accident at an official IABA event or during official club training. This policy does not cover individuals training at their own discretion.

The Board has further directed that there will be no championships or competition allowed to take place at club, county, provincial or national level until at the earliest, late September 2020. 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.
