The Football Association of Ireland board is set to review the process by which the decision was made to resume the League of Ireland season and in what format.

The Premier Clubs Alliance wrote to the FAI on behalf of the majority of Premier Division clubs, expressing their unhappiness at the promotion and relegation scenario in a reduced season.

They say that the National League Executive Committee process, which made the controversial decision, was flawed and called for an investigation.

The FAI announcement of a return of the League of Ireland, prior to the decision by the National League Executive Committee being ratified by the board, has also been questioned.

Yesterday some Premier Division sides expressed their anger at the decision publicly where just 18 games will be played, but potentially two sides could be relegated. 

Waterford FC said that some teams in the Premier Division may not restart the season following the announcement. 

Sligo Rovers also issued a statement that read: "This format was of particular disappointment to the club and is something we sternly object to.

"We believe it is grossly unfair, unjust and do not see the matter as concluded.

"We will be having further discussions on this issue with relevant parties."

The ball now moves to the FAI who must decide whether or not to ratify the proposal. 

The SSE Airtricity League is due to resume on 31 July.
