A new knock-out format for the 2019 FBD League was approved by the Connacht GAA Council at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

It means counties are guaranteed just one game and sees an end to the round-robin system that was introduced last year after the removal of colleges from the January pre-season competition.

The decision to change the format has been welcomed as mid-week games are now off the agenda and travel costs for county boards will lower.
