GAA Master Fixture Schedule: Tier 2 final confirmed for Croke Park in July
The GAA’s Master Fixture Program for 2020 has been published, with several notable changes.
Perhaps the introduction to this calendar has been the second-tier tournament in Gaelic football.
The final will take place on 18th/19th July; the middle weekend of the Super 8s. The event will be held in Croke Park, and also will the semi-finals on Sunday July 5.
The Super 8s will also find a shake-up in its third season of existence. In a bid to steer clear of final-round dead rubbers in the group stage structure, pairings for phases two and three will likely be based on the results of stage one; the second round will probably see the winners in the first weekend encounter, and the winners will play against one another.
A calendar year tournament has not yet been achieved, although the latter end of this club season was brought forward, as expected. The All-Ireland club semi-finals will be performed with the decider.
Even the U20 All-Ireland Football Championship has been transferred back using its.
The Leinster SFC final will be performed on a Saturday evening with the Munster showpiece, in 2020. Every year, the two councils have agreed to substitute their finals.
Although a new structure is also seen by the National Hurling League the club between commencement and the culmination of those championships are being retained.
