Fixtures Task Force

(Oldest Posts First)

With all the talk of different tiers and competition formats, people have forgotten one thing I fear.
Any changes to the football or hurling championships are likely to flounder without a proper fixtures calendar in place first, to ensure parity and fairness between the inter-county and club games.

With this in mind, I note the GAA have set up a fixtures task force, and should be commended for this move.

Also, they are currently providing a survey to get the thoughts and views of as wide a spectrum of GAA members and fans alike.

So many of the people here on the Hoganstand forums, with many great ideas, now is your chance to have your voice heard. Check the link and go to the survey and have your say!

Good post. There's a lot, myself included, who care a lot about this.

I have answered the survey now.

There's also an email address to send suggestions to.

GAA needs to downsize, especially in Gaelic football. Average attendance is now 4-6K for most matches. Yet they hold the matches in 20K capacity stadia. Average attendance at hurling is approx 7K so they need to look at this also.
