Munster Branch Competitions Season 2020-2021

Following a meeting of the Management Committee of the Munster Branch of Hockey Ireland (MBHI) on 3rd March, it was decided to approve the proposal of the Competitions Committee to abandon all leagues and cancel all cup competitions for the 2020/21 season. It was also agreed that all teams will compete in the same leagues next season (2021/22) as they were in for the 2020/21 season, subject to the number of team entries.
While it is disappointing to have made these decisions, it is felt that there is no alternative, especially following the Government announcement last week that Level 5 restrictions would remain in place to at least 5th April.
MBHI will continue to work with Hockey Ireland and other relevant authorities to ensure a safe return to our sport. Our focus now will be working on a full competition calendar for the 2021/22 season should restrictions allow, with the aim being to return to competition earlier in September than would be the norm.
