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.
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.
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.
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.
