The FAI have confirmed a four-team tournament will take place this summer to test the waters for the sport's return.

Dundalk, Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians and Derry City will all be regularly tested for COVID-19 from May 26th.

They'll then be allowed to resume group training on June 8th.

The tournament will take place in July or August at a neutral venue believed to be the Aviva Stadium.

All other SSE Airtricity League squads can return to collective training on June 29 and will also undergo regular testing.

All amateur adult and underage clubs can resume group training on August 10, with a return to play pencilled in for August 28
