The FAI have described a meeting with the National League Executive Committee as 'productive' as they seek a response to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.

All domestic soccer has been postponed amid efforts to limit large groups gathering, but with no gate in-come, League of Ireland clubs are being hit hard.

Sligo Rovers today announced that they have temporarily laid off all staff and players and First Division side Drogheda United have already suspended payments to staff and players as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The FAI are due to meet with all SSE Airtricity League clubs tomorrow. 

A statement from the organisation confirmed: "The Football Association of Ireland held a productive meeting with the National League Executive Committee on Thursday afternoon around the current difficulties facing our clubs and a return to action.

"Further talks will now place with all 19 SSE Airtricity League clubs on Friday.

"The FAI remains committed to supporting our clubs and players during this difficult period in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic."
