The North Tipperary & District League will revert to “Calender Year” football from March 2019 it has been agreed. The 2018 season is set to start tonight as the annual Shield’s commence before each league campaign starts on July 8th.
This is a big move for the league and the decision was taken after a steady decline in teams over the past few season’s coupled with an extraordinary amount of weather related postponements which made last season run for near forty weeks.
The league is hoping better weather will entice people to return playing and it also gives options of evening football over the season, something of which most clubs seem extremely interested in.
The 2018 season is to end in December and the full transfer to Summer Football is to happen by March 1st, 2018.
