Mayo GAA today published details of its club fixture schedule for this summer, following the GAA’s return to play at the end of July as the Covid-19 restrictions continue to be eased.
Details of the full fixtures schedule published today by Mayo GAA are here. The action is set to get going on 31st July and, on the football side, the finals of the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships have been fixed for the weekend of 18th – 20th September. There’s no change to the already published format for these competitions, which comprise an initial group stage followed by knockout matches at the business end.
It has also been reported today by RTÉ (here) that the GAA is considering announcing its revised inter-county Championship schedule for 2020 earlier than expected. This report by Damian Lawlor states that the GAA could move ahead and publish their plans once the Government reveals Phase 3 of the reopening roadmap on 29th June.
That piece, by the way, also states that the GAA is still mulling over the completion of this year’s National Leagues, in particular those games that will decide promotion and relegation. By the sounds of it, then, we’re not out of the woods on that one yet. For us, indeed, the resumption of inter-county action could well mean the completion – for good or ill – of our dogfight to avoid the drop from Division One.
