GAA fixtures 2022: Calendar confirmed with replays only for All-Ireland finals
Full implementation of the split-season means intercounty goes from 35 weeks to 26
The GAA today announced its inter-county Master Fixtures list for 2022.
The new split-season approach means that the average inter-county season length for each county has been reduced from 35 weeks to 26 weeks.
The All-Ireland Hurling Final will be played on July 17 with the All-Ireland Football Final 1 week later on July 24th, which is the 30th Sunday of the Year.
The Provincial Hurling Finals and Joe McDonagh Cup Final will be played on the weekend of June 4/5, with the Ring, Rackard, and Meagher Cup Finals on May 21.
The Provincial football finals will take place on the same weekend of May 28/29, with the Munster and Leinster Finals on Saturday and the Connacht and Ulster Finals on Sunday.
The Tailteann Cup will be part of the All-Ireland SFC structure in 2022 and the Final will take place on Saturday, July 7, which is the same weekend as the All-Ireland Football semi-finals.
All knock-out games in the Championship competitions will be subject to winner-on-the-day regulations. The only exceptions are the All-Ireland Senior Football and Hurling Finals which will have extra time in the original fixture and then the winner on the day in the event of a replay only.
