FAI 'disappointed' that NI fans will not travel for Ireland match

The Irish FA has said it is "disappointed" at the decision by the Amalgamation of Northern Ireland Supporters Clubs not to travel to the Northern Ireland v Republic of Ireland match on May 24.

"The Irish FA would like to reconfirm that the decision to link tickets with organised transport was taken in the interest of safety and security for our fans and in consultation with the PSNI and Garda," the FAI said in a statement.

"The transport fee of £30 per person was based on a large requirement of coaches, but now that these are not required, the Association will be meeting tomorrow to review the whole position, should there be any changes these will be communicated to all block bookers/NI fans members."
