Connacht U20 football championship LIVE this evening

Ocean FM Sport brings you a special programme this Wednesday evening for live coverage of the decisive Connacht under-20 football championship games which will determine the play-off stages for this year’s championship.

Austin O’Callaghan will be in on-air from 6:25pm to introduce live coverage of Leitrim clash with Roscommon in Ballinamore – and Sligo’s trip to Castlebar to play Mayo.

Both matches throw-in at 6:30pm

Essentially, the winners of the two games will qualify for the knockout stages of the Connacht U20 championship, along with Galway who booked their place in the play-offs last week.

The format of this year’s Connacht U20 football championship is a round-robin championship.

At the end of the group stage, the top-placed team qualifies directly for the Connacht final – with the second and third-placed teams contesting a single semi-final.
