Cavan senior football championship is set to begin on the weekend of August 16 and will run on the 2019 format.
The GAA last night published their roadmap to re-opening activity and set a-side an 11-week window from July 31st for club championship activity.
Cavan county board chairman Kieran Callaghan told Northern Sound that Cavan’s preference is return with rounds of league action from July 31 before starting the county championships.
The Cavan senior football final is set for Sunday October 11th as Callaghan explained Cavan board had setup a sub-committee looking at options to resume football and hurling activities.
“We have three options based at scenario of nine weeks, seven weeks or five weeks, with the announcement and the way it’s fallen we will be able to play the same championship format as last year.”
“League football will return on the August bank holiday and the following weekend and then we’re straight into the championship until its conclusion” explained Callaghan.
“The Under-17 championship will be run in conjunction with the senior championship” Callaghan confirmed.
“When the inter-county start’s we’ll revert back to league action to ensure we get as much football as possible.”
“Next week the management committee will meet to ratify the process and then bring that to Croke Park for approval” explained Callaghan.
“For the under-15 and under-13’s we should have more time to play games, but we will be doing our best to maximise the football being played” added Callaghan.
