Spectators not permitted to attend football matches in Derry City and Strabane District Council area
The Irish FA made the announcement on Friday after a further 934 cases of Covid-19 in Northern Ireland were revealed.
Friday's figures show 201 new cases in the Derry and Strabane as cases in the area continue to rise.
New restrictions were announced for the area by the Northern Ireland Executive earlier this week, and in light of that the IFA have taken the decision not to permit spectators to attend games at this time.
Football is allowed to continue at present due to the implementation of protocols designed to protect players and reduce the spread of Covid-19.
Sean Murphy, Irish FA Chief Operating Officer, said: “At this time we really must emphasise the importance of clubs across Northern Ireland ensuring these protocols continue to be adhered to.
“There have a been a number of recent instances where large numbers of players have had to isolate because teams have not followed the protocols correctly.
“Where a player has tested positive and the team has followed the protocols, we have found that the subsequent impact on the entire team has been significantly reduced. Changing rooms remain closed and showers are not to be used.
“Please remember to follow health guidelines on socially distancing, washing and sanitising hands and, of course, wearing face masks in enclosed spaces.”
