The Football Review Committee of the GAA has reaffirmed their desire to restructure the provincial championships into four eight-team competitions.

They believe the move would vastly improve the availability of weekend's for club fixture's throughout the country during the summer months.

The FRC claims that if the proposal to adjust the current make-up of provinces into four groups of eight for the All-Ireland Championship proper were to be adopted this would facilitate a more orderly and fairer system of playing off the Provincial and All-Ireland Championships.

They believe that the decision would allow for the club championships to be concluded by December

The Chairman of the FRC, Eugene McGee told “The key is to reach the four eights structure and enable a more streamlined Provincial and All-Ireland series while facilitating the playing of club championship games throughout the country during the summer months, something whose absence was the single biggest criticism to arise during our nationwide consultation process.”

The FRC is keeping an open mind as to how the provinces would be adjusted to allow for four eight-team provincial championships in football.
