IFA President David Martin elected to FIFA Vice-President's role   20/04/2021

Irish FA president David Martin has been elected as a FIFA Vice-President after winning the vote for the position reserved for the UK Associations.

David said: "I'm delighted for the Irish Football Association, football in Northern Ireland generally and the nation as a whole. It's a fantastic position for the Association to hold. I come from the amateur game and football worldwide is about the whole game, both for amateurs and professionally. It has been a great seven or eight days for football in Northern Ireland. The women's team qualified for the Euros last week and then we had a super Sunday, with Brendan Rodgers and Jonny Evans heading to Wembley for the FA Cup final, which is great for people who have grown up here and progressed. Equally, this is a great occasion for Northern Ireland football to have a FIFA  Vice-President. You cannot aspire to something like this. My thanks go to the 55 associations who have elected me, to be elected by your peers is incredible."

The committee at the Newcastle League would like to offer our congratulations to David and wish him every success.
