NI Sports Forum Statement- 2nd March 2021
The NI Sports Forum welcomes today’s announcement from the NI Executive on the pathway out of restrictions which will see a tiered approach for the resumption of sport and physical activity in the coming months. The NI Sports Forum has advocated for a tiered approach over recent weeks and months and we hope there is some light at the end of the tunnel for those of us who are passionate about their involvement in sport.
We do appreciate that for some, questions will remain as to when and how sport and physical activity can resume at the earliest opportunity. We urge the sporting public to show their support and patience with their clubs and governing bodies in the coming weeks and months as they implement the necessary steps for a safe return to activity as soon as possible.
The NI Sports Forum was pleased to join a number of outdoor sports in a meeting with Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey and Sport NI officials this afternoon to discuss the roadmap and to ensure sports bodies understand the steps that are required for a safe return to sport and physical activity. We look forward to continuing this positive engagement to ensure the return to sport is a lasting return in the times ahead.
