The 2019–2020 All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship is the 50th annual gaelic football club championship since its establishment in the 1970-71 season. The winners receive the Andy Merrigan Cup.

The defending champions were Corofin from Galway who defeated Dr. Crokes from Kerry on 17 March 2019 to win their 4th title.

Format[edit]

County Championships[edit]

All thirty two counties in Ireland and London play their county senior championships between their top gaelic football clubs. Each county decides the format for their county championship. The format can be straight knockout, double-elimination, a league, groups, etc. or a combination.

Only single club teams are allowed to enter the All-Ireland Club championship. If a team that is an amalgamation of two or more clubs, a divisional team or a university team wins a county's championship, a single club team will represent that county in the provincial championship as determined by that county's championship rules. Normally it is the club team that exited the championship at the highest stage.

Provincial Championships[edit]

Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster each organise a provincial championship for their participating county champions. The Kilkenny senior champions play in the Leinster Intermediate Club Football Championship. London continue to compete in the Connacht championship – in previous years they played one of the provincial champions in a single match in December referred to as a quarter-final.

All matches are knock-out. Two ten minute periods of extra time are played each way if it's a draw at the end of normal time in all matches including the final. If the score is still level after extra time the match is replayed.

All-Ireland[edit]

In a bid to shorten the break between the provincial finals and the All-Ireland semi-finals, the two semi-finals between the four provincial champions will be played in early January – previously they were held in mid-February. Traditionally, the All-Ireland final was played in Croke Park on St. Patrick's Day, the 17th of March, but it has also been moved to 19 January 2020.

TV Coverage[edit]

TG4 continue to broadcast live and deferred club championship games each year.[1] Eir Sport entered the third year of their agreement to broadcast live gaelic football and hurling club championship games, including county championships and provincial and All-Ireland club championship matches.[2] In addition to TG4 and eir Sport, RTÉ also broadcast games from the AIB Club Championships, which runs alongside TG4's coverage.[3]
