Ireland's football association seeking financial help

The Irish Football association has applied for the 135 million kroner in funding from the government of Ireland.

The Irish Football association (FAI) has sought financial support from the government of Ireland.

It confirms Ireland's minister for sport, Shane Ross, who says to the irish media the Irish Independent that it is about the equivalent of 135 million crowns.

But financial support is not an option, the minister says.

Ireland's national team missed in the first place the possibility to participate at next summer's european championship finals, as the team played to a 1-1 draw against Denmark in november in the teams ' last qualifier.

instead, should Ireland attempt to gain access to the finals, leading a lot of money with them, through the Nation's League.

Ireland missed also the WORLD cup in 2018, as the national team also was knocked out by Denmark in the qualification round.

Sportsministeren says that he is trying to set a meeting up with The union of European Football associations (Uefa) to discuss the federation's economic situation.

According to the irish media urged Uefa earlier this month the FAI to sell its share in the national stadium, the Aviva Stadium, which connected the owner, together with its rugbyforbund.

to Succeed it is not for the FAI to save the rocks financially, so it can also have major sporting consequences for the irish league, League of Ireland, believes Shane Ross.

- My guess is that if the FAI smoker, then smoking the League of Ireland also, the minister says.
