GAA Master Fixture Schedule: Tier 2 final confirmed for Croke Park in July
The GAAs Master Fixture Schedule for 2020 has been released, with several notable changes.
Perhaps the most crucial introduction to the calendar has become the second-tier tournament in football.
The final will take place on 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 may also observe a shake-up in its third season of existence. In a bid to avoid final-round dead rubbers from the group phase format, pairings for phases two and three will likely be contingent upon the results of stage one; the next round will probably see the winners in the first weekend face off, and the losers will play against another.
A calendar year championship has not yet been achieved, although the latter conclusion of the club season has been brought forward as anticipated. The All-Ireland club semi-finals will be played using the decider, in December 2020.
Even the U20 All-Ireland Football Championship was moved back to the springtime, with its.
The Leinster SFC final will be performed in 2020 on a Saturday day, together with all the Munster showpiece. Every year the two provincial councils have agreed to alternate their finals.
The five-week club between the culmination and commencement of the championships are being retained, while the National Hurling League sees a brand new arrangement.
