It appears that the rapid expansion of the sport is going to continue into the near future after several prospective new teams made contact with the IAFA seeking to play kitted football. These teams along with the existing IAFL2 teams have been invited to attend a workshop meeting on 12th September to be taken through the various league requirements and to get advice from others who have been involved in running teams.
At last Decembers AGM, Formative membership was granted to Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) to work towards playing competitive football in 2016.
In recent days, the IAFA Board has granted Formative membership to the following teams who also want to play competitive football in 2016:
North Dublin Pirates
Additionally, a team based in the Newry/Mourne area is also considering applying for 2016 and the University of Ulster Coleraine is intending to play flag football in the coming months in advance of moving to kitted football for 2017.
All of these teams are currently seeking experienced players, coaches and administrators. If anyone is interested in joining one of these teams, please let us know and we will put you in contact with the relevant team management.
