This year’s Leinster GAA Chadwicks Club Hurling League will follow a similar format to last year’s competition. Last year over fifty teams took part across four divisions with three of the Finals played as curtain-raisers to Leinster Senior Championship games and the fourth played in the National Games Development Centre in Abbotstown. The league affords clubs the opportunity to get quality games against teams they might not normally play and should provide ideal preparation for leagues and championships in their own county.
The Layout will be along the following lines:-
Groups of three (or four) with all guaranteed one home and one away game in the Group Stages
Quarter Finals – following on form Group Games (and Shield semi-finals also) – guaranteeing all a minimum of three games. Groupings will be graded with likely twelve teams in each section – all levels very welcome including Junior / Junior B with divisions formed accordingly.
SAMPLE – DIVISION 2
|Group 1||Group 2||Group 3||Group 4|
|Team 1||Team 4||Team 7||Team 10|
|Team 2||Team 5||Team 8||Team 11|

▪ Round 1 – Saturday February 22nd
▪ Round 2 – Saturday February 29th

Every effort will be made to keep travel time to a minimum – with groups of three affording all one home and one away game initially. Also, clubs are required to pay a deposit of €300 which is refundable on the basis of clubs completing their games.
