The IABA welcome the overall increase in the investment into the sport of Boxing in Ireland for 2019 which was announced by Ministers Ross and Griffin earlier today. Please click here.
The funding process for 2019 was completed in December 2018 and all NGBs were formally notified of their awards in December, which was appreciated by the IABA as it greatly assisted in the planning process in the lead into this Olympic qualification year.
The IABA were also encouraged to see Carding, and high performance funding in general being awarded for 2019 & 2020. This provides greater certainty up to Tokyo 2020 and is a major step towards multi annual funding.”
