John Delaney has resigned from the UEFA Executive Committee with immediate effect.
His time as an executive committee member was due to end next year.
The association says during his time on the Executive Committee, John Delaney played a leading role in helping UEFA to achieve many things, and wishes him well in the future.
Meanwhile, Irish fans will have access to an increased allocation of 2,200 tickets for the Republic’s Euro 2020 play-off away to Slovakia.
That means close to 10% of the 22,500 seats at the Tehelne Pole Stadium in Bratislava will be available through FAI channels. The Slovakian FA were only obliged to offer the FAI 5%, or 1,125 tickets, for the game.
The winners of that semi-final on March 26 will advance to a play-off final against either Bosnia & Herzegovina or Northern Ireland on March 31.
