The Olympic Council of Ireland will hold an election for President at an EGM in February.

All other Executive Committee positions will be up for election when the Council convenes on February 9th at Conrad Hotel, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2.

Pat Hickey stepped aside as OCI President earlier this year pending the outcomes of various inquiries into his alleged involvement in the Rio ticket scandal.

Nominations for all positions close on Wednesday, January 11th.

Hickey had been OCI President since 1988, heading the organisation until 2016.
