The draw for this year's Setanta Sports Cup has been postponed as the future of the troubled sports broadcaster appeared to remain in the balance.

The draw for the All-Ireland club competition was to have taken place in Dublin on Thursday.

But a statement from the Irish FA revealed: "This draw has been postponed at the request of Setanta Sports.

"It is to give the company a chance to gain clarity around a number of market related issues it currently faces."

The participating clubs will meet in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.

Five clubs from the Republic and four from Northern Ireland are in line to play in this year's competition.
