Leagues and Knockouts for 2020-21

The Gaelic Football league programme will run in Term Two only and there will not be any promotion or relegation between leagues at the end of the season. These decisions were communicated with our members in June.

The format for the programme has been confirmed to members and the 2020-21 leagues and fixtures will be released on Friday 15 January. Fixtures will be scheduled from 17 February, but these will be flexible to individual institutional requirements.

All fixtures will be subject to any institutional, NGB, UK government, devolved administration or local authority rules, regulations and guidance in relation to COVID-19 in place at the time.
