Licensing request at 'formality' for Dundalk


Soccer: Dundalk FC have said the additional information required from them by the club licensing committee is a “formality”.

Fourteen League of Ireland clubs were awarded Premier Division licences today, while four received First Division licences to add to the one awarded to Cobh Ramblers on January 23rd.

Dundalk, however, were given a conditional Premier Division Licence and asked to provide “further information regarding the transfer of ownership of the club”.

The club responded by saying the information will be available “in the next 24-48 hours”.

“Dundalk Football Club can confirm that we have been granted a conditional Premier league licence,” the club said in a statement today. “Over the past six months the process of transferring the club’s licence to the new company in control of Dundalk FC has been ongoing. This has been a very complicated process due to the uniqueness of this situation.

“Dundalk Football Club has received a request to provide one further piece of information to the licensing committee. This is a formality and will be concluded in the next 24-48 hours.

“We’d like to thank all Dundalk fans for their continued support.”

Clubs have five working days from the date of the decision notice to lodge an appeal.
