Club Players Association withdraw from GAA Fixtures Review Committee


Share this article


The Club Players Association has withdrawn from the GAA's fixtures review committee, citing frustration at the fixtures group looking to "ratify the status quo".

"In our opinion, the process has been designed to ensure that the 'Improved status quo' option is successful, squandering a unique opportunity for real and effective change", the CPA said in a statement today.

"Club players across the country will continue to be disrespected and disenfranchised and inter-county players will continue to have too much demanded of them.

The CPA also claim that their proposals were "not entertained".

"Taskforce members were then sent an email on August 1 suggesting three 'broad options' for consideration.

"In the same email, the members were asked to review the submissions from the general public. Despite our best efforts, the three 'broad options' suggested on August 1 dominated subsequent discussions.

"This not only made a mockery of asking the public for their opinions but it also contradicted the notion that 'everything was on the table'.

"In reality, it will simply be a ratification process for the newly introduced Tier Two football championship and retention of the Super 8s. Proposals that stand the best chance of getting through the decision-making process at Congress are not the same thing as the best proposals for the future of the GAA."
