IRFU Statement On New Stadium

IRFU Statement On New Stadium

The IRFU has issued the following statement on the High Court proceedings taken by Wanderers FC in relation to the new stadium at Lansdowne Road.

The legal action taken by the Wanderers FC seeking to prevent the IRFU redeveloping the stadium at Landowne Road was dismissed in the High Court today following a settlement between the IRFU and Wanderers FC.

It is a disappointment to the IRFU and the rugby community that Wanderers FC chose to take this matter to the Courts after two years of negotiations when, in the IRFU’s opinion,  the matter should have been settled months ago.

The focus is now on the development of the new stadium at Lansdowne Road and to ensure that this important project now proceeds on schedule.
