Team Ireland will contest all international tournaments, as planned.

Team Ireland will contest all international tournaments and training events, as planned, in all relevant countries. Clubs, county boards and provincial units are free to do likewise.

The IABA’s Board of Directors convened on Wednesday evening to discuss international competition matters, following the suspensions issued by the world governing body to 7 federations this week.

IABA notes the International Boxing Association’s rules of competition for boxers and officials affiliated to the suspended national federations. 

 All fully affiliated club and regional teams, once they have applied for and obtained relevant permissions to travel from their county board, provincial unit and Central Council, may proceed with all plans for international competitions. In obtaining permission, these teams are insured to compete through their IABA membership.

Team Ireland will contest the Eindhoven Box Cup, in the Netherlands, this weekend. Squads from clubs and regions are preparing to travel to federations all over the world to compete in the coming weeks, and the Board of Directors wishes all boxers and coaches the best of luck.

Clubs and units are reminded ofcirculars on permission to travel and participation in unsanctioned tournaments in December, March and April
