MUNSTER GAA HAVE confirmed fixture details for the remainder of the 2020 inter-county hurling and football championships at senior, U20 and minor level.

The senior action will begin at Semple Stadium in Thurles on Sunday 25 October, when the Limerick hurlers begin their Munster Championship defence against Clare.

The final is scheduled to be played on Sunday 15 November, followed a week later by the football decider.

Results will be determined on the day and all fixtures are to be played on a knockout basis, with the exception of the senior hurling championship, in which the three counties who fail to reach the provincial final will avail of the back-door route provided by the All-Ireland qualifiers.

Home and away arrangements continue for senior football, U20 hurling and minor football. However, with senior and minor hurling having been contested on a round-robin basis for the past two seasons, home and away arrangements would subsequently be disrupted. Therefore, those two competitions will be played at neutral venues for 2020.
