Delaney exits his FAI role


On 28 September, the FAI Board announced the resignation with immediate effect of Executive Vice-President and former CEO John Delaney.

In a brief statement, the Board summarised his career, serving as "CEO of the FAI from 2005 to March of 2019 during which time the FAI became partners in the new Aviva Stadium. In 2017, he was elected to the UEFA Executive and in March of this year, he moved to a role of Executive Vice-President of the FAI."

The statement ended by saying that both parties had agreed to make no further comment.

It was interesting that the formal statement included none of the compliments that are customary on such an occasion.

Delaney had been on "gardening leave" since last March.
