GAA Fixture Dates – All Ireland Super 8’s explained

With the new structure of the Super 8’s this year there will more games for spectators to go throughout the months of July and August. The way the Super 8’s will work is the four provincial champions and the four winning teams from round four of the qualifiers compete in two groups of four teams.

Each group will consist of two provincial champions and the two beaten finalists of the other two provinces or the team that beat beats them in round 4 of the qualifiers. The first round of fixtures in each group will see the two provincial champions and the two qualifiers meet in Croke Park. Round two and three will see each team have a home game and an away game. In terms of point scoring, a win is 2 points and a draw is 1 point. The top two teams after the 3 games per team in each group will qualify for the All-Ireland semi-finals.

The groups have already been decided except of course the teams. In Group 1, the Galway, Kerry and Monaghan and Kildare will go into battle. The first-round games are due to take place on 14th/15th of July with Galway v Kerry in Croke park and the two teams that qualified from round 4 of the qualifier facing off.

In Group 2, the Dublin, Donegal, Roscommon and Tyrone will go into battle, again these fixtures are due to be played on the 14th/15th of July. Again, the top two teams in each group progress to the All-Ireland semi-finals which will be played on the same weekend of the 11th/12th of August in Croke Park. The way this works is the winner of group 1 will play second in group 2, while the winner of group 2 will play second in group Kildare v Fermanagh, Armagh v Roscommon, Tyrone v Cork & Laois v Monagahan.
