The draws for the 2016 Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cups took place in Croke Park on Wednesday afternoon.

The competitions, which are sponsored by Independent.ie, are the premier prizes available in third level GAA and take place in January and February. This year's Sigerson Cup finals weekend will be hosted by the Ulster University at Jordanstown while the Fitzgibbon Cup finals will be held at Cork IT in Bishopstown.

The draws for the Trench Cup, Ryan Cup, Corn na Mac Léinn, Fergal Maher Cup, Corn Comhairle Ardoideachais and Corn Padraig MacDiarmada also took place today. Details of those draws are available here.
