Cricket Ireland and the Provincial Unions welcome the recent announcement from the Irish Government and NI Executive regarding the timetable for return to play in the Republic, and the phased return of spectators to outdoor sport in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland latest

From 24 May 2021, up to 500 spectators will be allowed at cricket matches in Northern Ireland at fixtures or events where the club or venue operator can ensure compliance with social distancing, control numbers accordingly, and have appropriate hygiene practices in place. These planned relaxations will be subject to review on 20 May.

Clubs are still reminded that for the next 10 days current restrictions are still to be maintained with no spectators permitted. However, the imminent return of spectators will be a relief to many within the cricket family, and welcome news to clubs and players as they get their seasons fully underway.

Republic of Ireland latest

We are delighted to confirm that the planned return to (T20) play from 7 June 2021 has been approved by Sport Ireland, and additional approval has been given for longer formats of the game from mid-July onwards.

The COVID-19 risk management commitments are obviously critical and Provincial Unions will be working hard to support clubs in meeting their obligations. Clubs should liaise with their relevant Provincial Union for details and support available to ensure a healthy and safe environment in which we can return-to-play.

Best of luck to all players as the club cricket season can finally get underway in the Republic.
