The 2022 Cork GAA club season commences next weekend, with the opening games in the Cork
Credit Unions county football leagues. This year’s leagues, the first since 2019 to be unaffected by
Covid-19, but also the first to take place in the new split-season era, have added interest due to the
planned restructuring due to take place later this year.

With all teams now guaranteed at least three championship games, the County CCC felt that a lesser
number of league games was appropriate, while the split season means a tighter timeframe and
weekends cannot be wasted with uneven groups. A target of ten teams per division and nine games
per team was established.

In order to restructure the leagues on a fair basis, the divisions have been split into Groups 1A & 1B,
2A & 2B, 3A & 3B (and 3C football) for 2022. Teams are allocated based primarily on their finishing
league position in 2019 and secondly on their championship status for 2022. Groups 1A and 1B are
of the same standard, for example, and are evenly graded.

In 2023, five divisions of ten teams and one division of 12 teams will be in place in both hurling and
football, based on finishing positions at end 2022, so it’s all to play for this year!

Speaking at the launch of the football leagues, County Chairperson Marc Sheehan said “We look
forward to hopefully running a normal season of games this year, though the changes that have
taken place at national level over the past two years mean that we are now operating in a slightly
different manner to accommodate the demands of the split season. However, we believe that we
have developed a programme of games that will be meaningful and beneficial to all clubs. We are
also delighted to have the continuing support of Cork Credit Unions for our football leagues, and we
thank them most sincerely for their generous sponsorship.”

Alan Duff, Chairperson Cork Credit Unions said “We are delighted once again to support these
leagues, and I would like to compliment the County Board on meeting the challenges of providing a
meaningful programme of league games within the parameters of the club window. On behalf of
Cork Credit Unions, I wish all participating clubs every success for the season ahead.”

All fixtures in the Cork Credit Unions County Football Leagues are available on the Cork GAA website,
