N.B. All Fixtures potentially should be considered as floodlit games.

The Dr McKenna Cup is a most prestigious competition organised by Comhairle Uladh. The competition has been running since 1926. It was designed as a competition to aid Ulster teams in pre season preparation. It has always been a competitive tournament with a noticeable correlation between success in the Dr McKenna Cup and success in National League and Ulster Championship.

Some years ago, the Ulster Council allowed universities to enter the competition.  This allows our universities to prepare for the Sigerson Cup which commences immediately afterwards and to offer fresh competition to counties.  Counties also benefit from the extra game time and the opportunity to view new players prior to the National Football League. The Ulster Council has repeatedly welcomed the addition of universities to the competition. For the universities to be competitive, they need to be allowed to play their Sigerson Cup panels. The format of allowing universities to compete has been so successful that all other provinces now follow suit.

The Ulster Council control the competition and apply the regulations. Universities do not have the panel strengths to compete unless they are allowed to play with their full Sigerson panels. Universities are not allowed to play first year students on the Sigerson team.  In the spirit of the GAA, the progress of those players who are selected to play for their college in this competition and who are deemed to be suitable for the county team, should not be hindered.  In most instances, counties have been accommodating in the above and it is the wish of the Ulster Council for this to continue.  

Competition Regulations:

(1) University Teams have first preference on Players.

(2) University Teams must submit their panel of twenty six players prior to 25th November and counties will have the opportunity to respond by 9th December, the same date that they must submit their panel of twenty six players. All lists will be approved by Competition Control Committee on behalf of Comhairle Uladh at the December meeting.  Teams must be drawn from the twenty six players or from an amended list approved by Comhairle Uladh.

(3) Comhairle Uladh will appoint a mediator who will facilitate dialogue in the event of a disputed player.

(4) A player who has played with his University team in the Dr McKenna Cup or a similar competition in another province may only participate with his county for the semi finals and final of the Dr McKenna Cup. This only applies if his university team has been eliminated from the aforementioned competition.

(5) If teams finish level on points scoring averages will apply.

(6) The fourth placed team shall be determined from the runner up in each

Section using the formula at (5) above.

(7) Refixtures shall be played at Floodlit Grounds.

(8) The Semi Finals and Final shall be played at Floodlit Grounds and include extra time if required.

(9) Failure to comply with Competition Regulations shall entail forfeiture of game.

(10) Teams are entitled to video their own games in the competition.
