2024 Championship Format Debacle May At Least Lead To Future Consensus

This year's Championship structure will proceed as originally planned and announced last year.

Offaly's clubs will have a proper chance to establish a championship format that works for both players, fans, and clubs in 2025.

That's the silver lining to the fallout over this year's proposed and now confirmed structure, according to Midlands 103 commentator, Brian Gavin.

Motions by both Ferbane and Durrow to revert to the 2023 rules were struck out by Offaly GAA at a county board meeting last night, because their submissions were deemed out of order.

However a 'football review group' may now work on a ten team championship format for 2025.

The current rule-set ensures no club will be eliminated from the group phase of the competition.

Gavin says a little bit more attention to detail could have avoided recent confusion:
