The GAA’s postponement policy on Allianz League games is as follows:
Where a County is unable to fulfil a fixture due to issues related to Covid, the game will be awarded to the opposing team (walkover), but without any further penalty being imposed. The exceptions to this are:
– Where there is a clear 13 days between the original fixture and the next scheduled round of the competition or
– Any game where relegation would be a direct consequence of the walkover.”
