GAA and GPA statement on experimental playing rules
The GAA and GPA can confirm that a meeting took place in Croke Park earlier today that included GAA President John Horan and GPA CEO Paul Flynn.
The meeting was held at the request of the GPA to seek further clarification on the process for the introduction of the trial playing rules in Gaelic Football.
It was noted that the initial part of the rules experimentation will take place in the upcoming Provincial Pre-Season competitions.
The GAA confirmed that there will be an opportunity at the next scheduled meeting of Ard Chomhairle on January 19 to review the proposals ahead of the Allianz Leagues.
The GPA have agreed to continue to liaise with the Standing Committee on the Playing Rules between now and January.
