I'm currently working on a new Irish League Set up; since our league is frankly a disgraceful!

I've always been a huge fan of the way the GAA set up their season: Having a provincial Championship, an All-Ireland Championship and a league system.

I'll up uploading the Database up here when I get it finished.





Plans:
  • To recreate all 32 counties as clubs representing their county regions; rather than clubs representing an area.
  • To set up 4 Provincial Cups: Munster, Ulster, Connacht & Leinster: Each being contested by their provincial counties.
  • To set up a two tier league with 16 teams in each division; for European Qualification.
  • A 32 team knock-out competition to represent the All-Ireland Cup (typical FA Cup)


[HR][/HR]
To do list

Done


  • Make all 32 Counties
  • Give each their own Kits and colors
  • Make all 32 Stadiums
  • Design League Set-up
  • Design Cups
  • Give teams reputations

Yet to do

  • Give teams training grounds and youth stadiums
  • Create affiliate B teams and Set up a Youth League for competitive youth football
  • Set up Youth Cups
  • Give teams attendances based on league and stadium size
  • Sim 10 season to test finances and other variables, ect
  • Set Transfer Window Rules
  • Set Discipline Rules.
  • Set rivalries and derbies

Note: The vast majority of the Stadium's capacity is standing.

Each County is broken up into their Provincial Regions

Provincial Championship
Format:

Munster: Round-robin League - top 4 qualify for Munster Semi-finals

Ulster: Two Groups of 4 (Round-robin): Top 2 from each group qualify for Ulster Semi-final
View attachment 265632

Connacht: Round Robbin League - top 4 qualify for Connacht Semi-finals
View attachment 265631

Leinster: Two Groups of 6 (play each other only once) - Top 2 from each group qualify for Leinster Semi-final
View attachment 265627

Knock out rounds and final are played in Neutral venues based in the Province.

* I moved Donegal into the Connacht league make help with cup fixtures: Connact and Ulster now have 6 & 8 counties respectively.
[HR][/HR]
All Ireland Senior Cup
  • First Round: All counties enter at this stage; no seeding - Single leg, knock-out round, Neutral venue
  • Second Round: Single leg, knock-out round, Neutral venue
  • Quarter Final - Single leg, knock-out round, Neutral venue
  • Semi-Final - Single leg, knock-out round, Neutral venue
  • Final - Single leg, knock-out round, Croke Park

Legue: 23/8/14 - 9/5/2015
Provincial Championships: 6/9/14 - 22/1/15
All Ireland Championship: 14/2/15 - 16/5/14


Draft Schedule
  • August - League starts
  • September - Provincial Championship starts
  • December - Christmas Break
  • January - Provincial Championship Finals
  • February - All-Ireland Cup starts
  • May - League finishes and All-Ireland Cup Final.
[HR][/HR]

I've Given each county their respective GAA stadium and switch Ireland's home national grounds to Croke Park.

Each Stadium is freshly created, Longitude and latitudes with researched Capacity; seating/standing and expansion potential; as well as existing redevelopment.



  • ex. Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh is a 32,500 (19,500 seated) stadium due to be expanded to 45,000 in 2016.

Very impressive. Looks like you put in a lot of work on this. Well done! Up the Royals!!
Cheers mate. I'm currently simming about 20-30 years into the future just to see how the finances work out and if the league become competitive or if I need to tweak things.

I'd love some play testers when it's closer to being finished to let me know how it feels; is the schedule too packed or is it paced out enough, ect.

I wouldn't mind giving it a try mate.

I'd be interested in this.
What county are you from yourself (and more importantly, have you been unbiased?) ;)

I don't see anything listed regarding players.

I'm still working on it. I'm Irish born and bread: living in Limerick :p
Been researching the rivalries between the counties and deciding what/if would constitute a derby :p
Meath vs Dublin has to go in there :p

I haven't even started on players. I'm half tempted to do a lucky pot and draw them at random and see what happens. Since they're 32 brand new teams, they don't have players.

Update:

  • Setting up an inter-varsity competition that feed into the junior affiliated team: UCC, CIT feed into Cork Juniors who are affiliated with Cork. LIT & UL feed into Limerick Juniors who are affiliated with Limerick (I'm trying to give every level of the database competitive football. I personally hate U19s and Reserve football as it dosn't appear on the history. I like complete histories )
  • Populating the counties with real players from the league of Ireland: using their city of birth as a filter
  • Getting all the club logos and making kits so you can import them

This Database has taken me far too long to finish. I'm currently play testing a few years to see if it's holding up.
The All-Ireland Senior Championship has been giving me problems but hopefully it's working now.

Advanced Rules - You're a cruel mistress but I'm getting the hang of you!
