Clubs in Tyrone have until the end of January to discuss a series of proposals presented to them by the Competitions Control Committee (CCC) on potential structures for the 2021 season.
The CCC have devised a games programme and several proposals have been communicated to all the Clubs to give some ideas on what the Tyrone GAA fixtures calendar might look like.
The draft correspondence circulated to all Club Secretaries starts out by acknowledging the uncertain backdrop to the year caused by the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.
“ Unfortunately we face into another year of uncertainty. The shape of the GAA calendar at National level is very unclear and appears to becoming more of a problem as time passes.
“ The starting date of the National Leagues was 27th/ 28th February and not alone is the start date now an issue but no one can say for sure if there will even be a National League in 2021. So we can all be forgiven for not being clear about what things will look like in the club calendar for 2021.”
The Tyrone Fixtures planners address the issue of the outstanding games in last year’s underage and adult competitions which are yet to be completed.
“We want to make it clear to you that we wish to conclude all competitions that had started in 2020 and were paused due to the pandemic. We aim to conclude these games at the earliest opportunity as soon as there is an indication that these games can be fixed and played. We would naturally wish to provide clubs with as much notice as possible. We thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding.”
