Wexford GAA officials have been urged to include quarter-finals in their revised club championship structure, after some key decisions were made at a County Board meeting held via videoconference on Wednesday.

As expected, the suggested format of four groups of three teams in both codes was approved, with round one of the hurling competitions set to commence on Friday, July 31.

In a major break with tradition, those championships will be played to a conclusion, with the football competitions not getting under way until after hurling semi-finals have been played.
