Further to the release of the Association’s “COVID-19 Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games”, last weekend, the Tyrone Fixtures’ Review Committee and the County Management Committee have prepared a programme of fixtures at adult and youth levels, based on the best available information at this time, and on the assumption that the Association’s roadmap can be adhered to.
The major change being proposed during this pandemic emergency is to amend the adult football leagues where each existing division would be sub-divided into two groups, thereby offering a minimum of seven competitive games to each participating team. These leagues would commence on 31st July and, on completion of the first four rounds, the three football championships (JFC, IFC and SFC) would begin, based on the existing draws and with all matches being played to a conclusion on the day.
Full details of this planned games’ programme are included herewith. It is acknowledged that amendments to this programme may become necessary in the weeks or months ahead, dependent on a number of factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic including, government guidelines and directives from Croke Park.
Finally, it is emphasised that participation in Gaelic Games is a matter of choice for each individual player and for each team – any team, or any individual, may decide to opt out during the current season.
