(Where 3 teams finish on the same points and can’t be separated by head to head/playoff, a draw will be conducted by the runai and one other officer to determine the final league standing)
Referees are available from the list on https://cnmb.ie/reiteoiri/. Home teams should organise the referees with agreement from opposition. Results should be updated in the members area of this website.
Venues have been fixed automatically by the fixture system, Schools should liaise with venues to ensure they are free. Where a venue is down as “FIRST TEAM HOME”, the first team has been drawn as home but their home venue is full, according to the system. It is the responsibility of the home team to sort a venue for their game. If this is not possible, the away team can provide the venue.
Coiste CnmB wishes all teams the best of luck in the upcoming season. The football season is extremely tight with just 8 weeks from Game 1 to the finals. We ask all schools to cooperate with the organisations and abide by our Moltaí, being respectful to referees and opposition teams. Lastly, participation is key to development, schools are encouraged to give children meaningful game time and keep panels that allow this.
