The GAA Are Planning Major Changes To The U21 Championship

The GAA Are Planning Major Changes To The U21 Championship

The issue of player burnout, especially at U21 level, is the big reason for the major changes proposed by the GAA for the game at that level.

Under the new proposals, there will be no intercounty U 21 competitions at all, with a shortened U-20 level being played over June and July. With a shortened tournament, the games will be played midweek.

The proposals are also calling for replays to be scrapped at U-20 level to avoid burnout and a fixture congestion, unless it's a provincial final or All-Ireland final.

The games will call for a winner to be found on the night, with extra-time and sudden death free kicks being used to determine a winner.

The proposals will need a two-thirds majority to pass. Would you want the interesting changes to happen?
