The 2002 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was the 116th edition of the championship since its establishment in 1887 and was played from May to September 2002. The final was contested between Armagh and Kerry in a repeat of the 1953 All-Ireland Football Final, which was Armagh's first appearance in a final. Unlike 1953, however, a spirited performance from the Orchard county was enough to secure the county's very first All-Ireland title.

Format[edit]

Following the successful use of the qualifier system for the first time in 2001, the same system was used in 2002.

The provincial championships in Munster, Leinster, Ulster and Connacht ran as usual on a "knock-out" basis. These provincial games were then followed by the "Qualifier" system:

  • Round 1 of the qualifiers included all the counties that did not qualify for the Provincial Semi-Finals. An open draw was made to give eight pairings.
  • Round 2 consisted of the eight defeated teams in the Provincial Semi-Finals playing against the eight winners from Round 1. A draw was made to determine the eight pairings.
  • Round 3 consisted of the 8 winners from Round 2 playing each other in an open draw format.
  • Round 4 consisted of each of the four teams defeated in the Provincial Finals shall playing against the four winners from Round 3. A draw was made to determine the four pairings.

In the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals, each of the four Provincial Champions played one of the four winners from Round 4. The All-Ireland Semi-Finals were determined on a provincial rota basis, initially determined by the Central Council. If a Provincial Championship winning team was defeated in its Quarter-Final, the team that defeats it took its place in the Semi-Final.
