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 (until after the 29th March 2020) will stay in place. This timeline will be reviewed in line Government and HSE guidance.

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

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 least June 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. We encourage all members to do likewise.


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

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.
