John Delaney Has Resigned From The FAI

The Football Association of Ireland have announced that John Delaney has resigned from the organisation.

It was confirmed on Saturday night that Delaney, who served as the chief executive of the FAI for 14 years, has left the association.

Delaney moved into a new position as executive vice-president in March after stepping aside from his role as CEO.

The FAI statement on his resignation is just 103 words long and was released late on Saturday night.

It reads:

The Board of the Football Association of Ireland announces the resignation with immediate effect of Executive Vice-President and former CEO John Delaney. This follows talks between the parties. The FAI will fulfil certain notice and pension obligations as agreed between the parties.

Mr. Delaney served as CEO of the FAI from 2005 to March of 2019 during which time the FAI became partners in the new Aviva Stadium. In 2017, he was elected to the UEFA Executive and in March of this year, he moved to a role of Executive Vice-President of the FAI.

Both parties have agreed to make no further comment.
