GAA Club Championships to be played across 11 weeks

Individual GAA county boards will be able to determine the structure of their championships this summer, with the club season set to be played across 11 weeks.

At this evening's press conference to announce the association's roadmap for the resumption of training and games, the GAA's President John Horan stressed that there was "no drive to have knockout" from Croke Park and stressed that county boards have the autonomy to decide in what manner they want their Championships to be played.

With club set to give way to inter-county by mid-October, it seems unlikely All-Ireland or provincial championships will take place in 2020 due to the shortened calendar.

“What we have done is created a window, it is 11 weeks if you count them, 11 weeks for the club player,” the GAA's Head of Games Administration Feargal McGill said of the plans.

“We have also put the club player first in line. It will fall down to counties about how to use those 11 weeks.

“They might be planning a straight knockout championship, but if they are they are certainly factoring in extra games as well. Frankly I think it is a complete misnomer.

“I think we are presented with a particular problem here, a shortened calendar and we can't deliver everything we would like to deliver to either county player or club player.

“So everyone is going to have to just take a small bit of understanding about what we are trying to do and take a small bit of pain if you'd like. I'd certainly say the club players are to front in this, I would absolutely say that, as a club player by the way.”

“It is a matter for each county as to how they will run their Club Championships. It is up to them to come up with their structures. In terms of the inter-county Championship, the CCC will come up with something."
