One Round Remaining Before Club Championship Gets to Knock Out Stages
Last weekend, Round 2 games were played in the Kerry Petroleum Club Championship. All the results and tables can be found on the Kerry GAA website. CCC met on Sunday night to set the fixtures for Round 3.
For the Senior Club Championship, the top team in each Group qualifies for the Final. The lowest placed team in each Group will play in the relegation play-offs – subject to the following exemption - any team that qualifies for the Senior County Championship Final cannot be relegated. Where this occurs, the following shall apply - where only one of the lowest placed team in either Group qualifies for the Senior County Championship Final, the remaining lowest placed team in the other Group is relegated. Where the lowest placed team from both Groups qualify for the Senior County Championship Final, the third placed team in both groups play-off to decide who is relegated
For the Intermediate, Junior Premier and Junior Championships, the top two teams in each Group are in the Quarter Finals.
In terms of qualifying for the Quarter Finals of the Club Championship there is no advantage in finishing first or second in the Group. The Quarter Final draw is open and venues are neutral. The two teams that played in the same Group cannot meet in the Quarter Final.
The bottom team in each Group progress to the Relegation Play-offs in the Intermediate and Junior Premier Championships. Round 1 Relegation Play-off will have an Open Draw and will be played at a Neutral Venue. Winner on the Day regulations apply. Round 2 Relegation Play-off involves the Losers from Round 1 and will be played at a Neutral Venue. Winner on the Day regulations apply. The Round 2 losing team is relegated.
In the Junior Championship the lowest placed team in each Group will play in the Novice Championship. The CCC may allow other Junior teams who have not qualified for the Quarter Finals to play in the Novice where a case for their inclusion can be justified.
In the event of teams finishing on equal points in the Group Stages of the Club Championships, the tie shall be decided by the following means and in the order specified:
- Where two Teams only are involved – the outcome of the meeting of the two Teams in the Group
- Score difference – subtracting the total Scores against from the total Scores for.
- Highest Total Score For
- Highest Total Goals For
- In the event that two teams or more finish with equal points, but have been affected by a disqualification, loss of game on a proven objection, retirement or walk over, the tie shall be decided as per Rule 6.21 (4) (d) (OG 2020).
- A Play-Off
