League Of Ireland Clubs Receive Boost from UEFA

Four League of Ireland clubs received a welcome boost yesterday from UEFA when it was announced that they would receive a portion of the €21,134 million collected from clubs due to Financial Fair Play restrictions.

Nine clubs including Manchester City, Paris Saint Germain and Zenith Saint Petersburg were fined for their non-compliance this season with the Financial Fair Play regulations.

UEFA decided to split the money amongst all clubs who played in the Europa League and the Champions League this season. European Club President Karl Heinze Rummenigge said yesterday:

This distribution concept is a great sign of solidarity between big and small club’s.

The four Irish clubs affected by this windfall are Sligo Rovers, Derry City, Drogheda United and St Patrick’s Athletic. These funds will be an added bonus as the season draws to a conclusion. It will enable the clubs to invest in their prospective futures.

It will be interesting to see if UEFA continue to distribute any fines collected from clubs who breach it’s Financial Fair Play regulations in the future.
