Irish League fans could have the opportunity to watch their clubs through a pay-per-view service - if they are unable to attend games due to Covid-19 restrictions, it has been suggested.

The Danske Bank Premiership is due to kick off on October 17 and clubs have been working to make sure they can get supporters back into the stadiums in a limited capacity.

Concerns have grown that games may have to be played behind closed doors after the Executive announced tighter Covid-19 restrictions on Monday.
