New Competition Approved
A club forum was held last Thursday online. 85 people attended on behalf of their Club or District.
It was an opportunity for the CCC to make a presentation to Clubs on a suggested ‘Millennium Cup’ type competition for the remaining weekends of the year. The format suggested was as follows –
4 Cup Competitions (16 per each Cup)
– Cup 1 = 8 Senior Clubs v 8 top Intermediate Clubs
– Cup 2 = 8 lowest Intermediate v 8 top Junior Premier
– Cup 3 = 8 lowest Junior Premier v 8 top Junior
– Cup 4 = 8 lowest Junior v 8 from remaining teams
The games are to be played regardless of whether inter-county players are available or not. Feedback from the clubs was taken on the night and the Management Committee met on Monday night to review the feedback.
The Management Committee approved the proposal. CCC will issue invitations to Clubs this week and the Club will decide whether to take part or not.
It will be an exciting competition with Cups and Shields on offer!
Everyone remembers the Millennium Cup and likewise this new Competition will be remembered in the history books.
We are hoping to secure a sponsor for this competition and the company in question will get the opportunity to be associated with this unique competition as well as being in a position to give back to the Club player.
Our Clubs were unbelievable in how they tackled every obstacle placed in their way since March and now it is time that they are rewarded for their help.
