All domestic football in Northern Ireland has been suspended until April 4 at the earliest due to the COVID-19 crisis following an emergency meeting of the IFA Board yesterday afternoon.

That means that local fixtures in the Fermanagh and Western Football League and Ballinamallard's games in the NIFL Championship have now been postponed.

On Thursday evening both NIFL and the Fermanagh and Western had released statements to say that their fixtures would go ahead but in a fast moving situation, that stance changed on Friday afternoon.

A statement from the Fermanagh and Western read:

"Following an Emergency Meeting of the Board of the Irish Football Association held this afternoon, a decision has been made to suspend all domestic football matches until 4th April at the earliest. This decision will be kept under review and further information and guidance will be released when available.

"During this time, clubs are requested to limit all unnecessary contact and ensure all relevant protocols are observed."
