The All-Ireland Football Championship is set for a revamp after the green proposal received a strong backing at GAA Congress.

Almost 95 per cent of delegates voted in favour of a tiered All-Ireland Championship which will see the eight provincial finalists and the next best eight teams based on league standings compete for the Sam Maguire.

They'll play in a round-robin series with four groups of four where the table toppers will progress directly to All-Ireland quarter-finals.

The 16 teams who don't qualify for the All-Ireland Senior Championship will play in the second-tier Tailteann Cup.
