The Irish FA issued a statement after two of its top officials attended a meeting on Wednesday night with the committee running the Danske Bank Premiership.
The IFA said it was working with the Stormont government to ensure football is included in financial support schemes.

No decision was taken at the Wednesday meeting on whether the current season should be abandoned. UEFA has set a May 25 deadline to submit plans on concluding the campaign.
Further discussions are to be held involving the other NIFL divisions and Women's Premiership.
