The Gaelic Players Association are reported to have informed their players of the possibility there could be no GAA Championships this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is reported the GPA are set to be asked by the GAA to canvass their members over whether they would be in favour of playing matches behind closed doors if this was the only way of hosting the hurling and football championships.

The GPA are believed to be in favour of a one month lead in time for their players to prepare for inter-county matches with no club activity for relevant players.

Later today, the GAA will host a Special Congress where they are expected to sanction a Management Committee to make executive decisions around the calendar.

Two motions are on the table.

The first will discuss whether or not to hand over authority to the GAA's management committee.

Should the first motion be passed then the second would allow the management committee make decisions on competition structures.
