MOSCOW, April 16 (R-Sport) – FIFA will compensate the Russian Football Union for postponing its World Cup qualifying clash against Northern Ireland last month, a source with the Russian FA told R-Sport on Tuesday.

The teams were scheduled to play on March 23, but the referee called off the match because ice was forming on the pitch in Belfast. FIFA said last week the game will be played on August 14.

It is unclear how much FIFA will compensate the Russian FA, but the reimbursement is expected to cover the union’s costs to prepare for the away game. The Irish Football Association, the source said, will not have to hand over cash to its Russian counterpart.

“Northern Ireland will not have to pay the Russian FA,” the source said. “Compensation claims will be carried out by FIFA.”

In an email Tuesday, FIFA refused to comment and directed questions to the Russian FA.
