The IFA approved our exception application at last night’s Board meeting with the provision that the proposed alternative venue for our home matches complied with general intermediate level regulations.
Institute Club representatives met with IFA and NIFL officials at Wilton Park at noon today and we’re given verbal confirmation that the ground did meet with the relevant regulations.
We now await official confirmation in writing from the IFA, but we can confirm to our supporters that we will be playing home games at Wilton Park in the not too distant future.
We wish to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to the Committee of Churchill FC who have gone out of their way to help us in these difficult times.
We also would like to thank all the other Championship clubs who unanimously supported our exception application to the IFA.
We will now liaise with Churchill and NIFL to schedule future home games in a way that is mindful of Churchill’s previous commitments and their own home fixture schedule.
