The decision to extend the 2020 season has been ratified by the National League Executive Committee with the final rounds of both divisions pushed back for competition integrity purposes, with all fixtures scheduled for the same time and date.

The two St. Patrick's Athletic fixtures which were affected by the squad's 14-day isolation have been rescheduled. Finn Harps v St. Patrick's Athletic will now be played on Wednesday, October 28 and St. Patrick's Athletic v Dundalk will now take place on Sunday, November 1.

The dates for the Extra.ie FAI Cup quarter-finals have been scheduled. The four fixtures will be in October & November due to Dundalk's progression in the UEFA Europa League, the November international window and the promotion/relegation play-offs, with kick-off times to be confirmed.
