Cork Senior Football Final Postponed Until At Least Early March

Cork GAA has announced that club finals in the county will not be played until the spring of next year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a statement, it was said that junior finals will be played in February at the earliest while for senior and intermediate finals, it will be March at the earliest.

The Cork Premier SFC decider between Castlehaven and Nemo Rangers is one of the major county finals yet to be played.

"At last night’s County Executive meeting, it was decided to postpone the unplayed 2020 Senior and Intermediate County Finals until the weekend of March 5th-7th, 2021, at the earliest," reads the statement.

"It is planned to give adequate notice of games to clubs, with an appropriate window of preparation, in advance of finals.

"2020 County Championships at Junior A, B and C level will resume on February 5th-7th at the earliest, with a brief period to be allowed for the completion of Divisional championships in early February where required.

"There will be no Club games at adult or juvenile level permitted at County Board or Divisional level before Friday, February 5th.

"Club U21 competitions for 2020 will not be completed.

"Adult club training is prohibited from midnight tonight and non-contact training for school children outdoors in pods of 15 is permitted for the obvious associated health benefits and should not be competition focussed."
