There is set to be a Special Congress of the GAA in April or May to vote upon radical proposals to revamp the Senior Football Championship.
There are no concrete plans to change the structure of the Senior Hurling Championship.
A GAA fixtures task force has issued a 63-page report which will now be subject to a 'roadshow' or a listening tour over the coming months to gauge whether there is support for change.
The intention is for the Association to provide more space for club activity, in the windows of April and August to October.
There are three options on the table.
The first is to retain the status quo as it is right now.
The second is to have a league structure during the spring as currently construed, then an early championship stage involving four provinces of eight counties, moving counties out of Leinster and Ulster.
The final and most intriguing proposal is to flip the calendar, holding the provincial championships in the spring and then a league format in the summer, with the placings from that league to determine the makeup of the All-Ireland senior football championship quarter-finals.
Under all proposals, a two-tier championship would remain.
In all of the proposals, the All-Ireland senior hurling and football finals would be held on consecutive weeks.
The Club Players Association representative withdrew from the fixtures review committee in November.
