The Board of Management of the Football Association of Ireland have confirmed the structure of the Airtricity League for 2013 season.
Prior to the decision, information meetings were held with clubs and the matter was also discussed by the National League Executive Committee.
The Board recommends a 12 club Airtricity League Premier Division for the 2013 season. The Board will also seek expressions of interest for First Division licences from clubs or new entities for the 2013 season. Interested clubs will be invited to contact the FAI in the first instance after which they will be forwarded a pack and a licensing manual to apply for an Airtricity League First Division license.
