It’s less than two weeks until the opening round of the Wexford Senior Hurling Championship…
It has now emerged that Wexford GAA are aiming to live-stream two championship matches each week.
A meeting will be held tonight, July 8th, to decide which matches will be live-streamed.
As per the GAA rule book, Wexford GAA cannot live stream any matches if a broadcaster is showing any game at that time. That means that if TG4 are showing a club championship match from Leitrim at 4 of a Saturday, Wexford would not be able to live stream their Saturday championship match near the same time, as it inflicts with the broadcaster’s schedule and rights.
The news was announced at last week’s County Board Meeting.
Wexford GAA, who are hoping to live-stream at least two championship matches weekly, have noted that a small access fee will apply to watch these games, which would be available through their own website or YouTube channel.
It follows many other county’s who have already introduced live streaming of their club games. The move comes after attendance figures at games will be greatly impacted and limited due to the new Coronavirus restrictions.
Meanwhile, one of the first Wexford hurling matches back — the game between Oulart-The Ballagh and St Martins — will be broadcasted live on TG4.
In other GAA news, a Rapparees and Wexford Senior star will not be featuring in the opening games of this year’s hurling championship after he suffered a broken bone in his foot.
