Cork City say they'll have to stop paying their players and staff from next week due to the "difficult and uncertain times" brought on by the coronavirus crisis.
The SSE Airtricity League is not set to resume until at least the 19th of June and Cork have joined Sligo Rovers in having to halt payments to staff.
City chairman Declan Carey says it was a "difficult" decision to make in the "best interests of the club" and he hopes normality can resume soon:
"The board has daily discussions on the latest financial position of the club and this decision was not an easy one.
"We are responsible to our shareholders to make these difficult decisions in the best interests of the overall future of the club.
"We hope things can return to some level of normality soon, however, we urge all our supporters to continue to help the club through this next period of uncertainty through buying merchandise, and supporting our online fundraising initiatives."
While Cork City are hoping that funding will be made available to help players and clubs through the next few months:
"We will work with our staff with regard to the recently announced government funding for workers affected by this unprecedented crisis and do everything we can to help and support them.
"There have been ongoing talks between the National League Executive Committee, the FAI and the PFAI, along with regular communication between all Premier Division clubs via the Premier Clubs Alliance.
"It is our fervent hope that all of these parties will continue these communications and will arrive at a solution regarding support and/or funding for clubs during this crisis."
