Youth Interprovincial set for Dublin this weekend


Youth Interprovincial set for Dublin this weekend

The 2023 FAI Youth Interprovincial Tournament kicks-off this weekend as the Munster Football Association look to defend their title.
10th Mar 2023

The action is set for the AUL Complex and the Oscar Traynor Centre over the course of the weekend as the first addition of the competition since 2019 gets underway later this evening.

Due to COVID disruption, the tournament has been on hold in recent times but it will return tonight to decide the Youth Interprovincial winners between Munster, Ulster, Connacht and Leinster.

It is a round-robin style tournament where all teams play each other and the team which finishes top of the group will be crowned the winner with the runners-up in second spot.

Munster FA secured the 2019 title in Connacht in the last addition of the tournament and they start their tournament off against Leinster FA at the AUL Complex this evening.
