The 2014 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship is the 127th edition of the GAA's premier inter-county Gaelic football since its establishment in 1887. It is played between 31 counties of Ireland (excluding Kilkenny), London and New York.

Changes for 2014 included the introduction of black cards for "cynical" fouls, the addition of IPTV service GAAGO for international audiences and the broadcasting of live televised matches on Sky Sports for the UK audience.

The defending champions are Dublin.[1]

Teams[edit]

A total of 33 teams contested the championship. These include 31 teams from Ireland, as well as London and New York. As in previous years, Kilkenny footballers decided not to field a team. New York does not participate in the qualifiers.

Broadcasting[edit]

In the first year of a deal running from 2014 until 2016, a total of 45 provincial and All-Ireland championship matches in hurling and football will be broadcast live on television in Ireland.[2][3] A total of 31 games will be shown by RTÉ and 20 by Sky Sports for the first time, both All-Ireland Semi Final and Finals will be shared coverage between the two broadcasters. TV3's six year-involvement with broadcasting games came to an end in 2013. Sky Sports will also broadcast live the All-Ireland hurling and football semi-finals and finals along with RTÉ.[4][5][6][7][8]

Rachel Wyse and Brian Carney were announced as presenters of Sky's coverage, with Dave McIntyre and Mike Finnerty as commentators.[9] Analysts were Peter Canavan and Paul Earley.[10][11]

Australia's terrestrial Channel 7 will broadcast all 45 Championship games.[12]

In May, the GAA and RTÉ launched a new streaming service called GAAGO intended to stream championship games worldwide.[13] The subscription-based service will be available to fans everywhere in the world outside of the island of Ireland, including all the games broadcast in Ireland exclusively by Sky Sports.[14] All 45 televised games from the football and hurling championships, as broadcast by both RTÉ and Sky will be available to watch on GAAGO.[15] For Great Britain, the games broadcast by Sky will only be available through Sky. The price for a worldwide GAAGO 'Season Pass' is €110 while in Britain, the GB Pass will be €60. A pay-per-game option is available for €10, and this will rise to €14 for the quarter-final, semi-final and final stages of the championship.[16]

All-Ireland qualifiers[edit]

Round 1[edit]

The first round consisted of all teams that failed to reach their respective provincial semi-finals. 16 teams in total took part. The draw took place on Monday 9 June 2014 on RTÉ Radio 1.[18]

2014 saw a new qualifying system implemented. The teams were split into groups A and B depending on which side of the draw they had played in their provincial championships. Each team was drawn to face an opponent from the same group as themselves, meaning A teams were paired with A teams and B teams were paired with B teams. Four games were instituted for each round, with Round 1A staged on 21 June and Round 1B taking place on 28 June.[18]

Round 4[edit]

The fourth round of the qualifiers features the four winning teams of Round 3A and Round 3B. The draw saw each team from the previous qualifier round face a provincial runner-up. The teams from Round 3A faced runners up from Connacht and Munster, while the teams from Round 3B faced those from Leinster and Ulster, with the four winners of these matches progressing to the All-Ireland Quarter Finals.

For the Round 4A games no draw was necessary as Sligo had already faced Galway, while Tipperary had previously played Cork. A similar situation occurred on the B side of the draw, with Armagh unable to meet Monaghan, and Kildare having played Meath previously.

All-Ireland series[edit]

Quarter-finals[edit]

The quarter-finals will feature the four provincial champions, along with the teams that progress from Round 4 of the qualifiers. The teams from Round 4A will face either the Connacht or Munster champions in the earlier games, while the following weekend sees the teams from Round 4B face the champions from Leinster and Ulster.

Teams coming from the qualifiers that had already met one of the provincial champions in an earlier match in the competition were automatically kept apart from that team. This made a draw unnecessary on the A side of the draw, Cork and Galway were prevented from facing Kerry and Mayo respectively. On the B side of the draw, Armagh had not met either of the teams and were able to play either Donegal or Dublin, but Monaghan's earlier game with Donegal meant that those two teams were kept apart, again making a draw unnecessary.[19]

Semi-finals[edit]

There is no draw for the semi-finals as the fixtures are pre-determined on a yearly rotation (which ensures that the provincial champions can only meet once every three years if they win their quarter finals). The winners of the two A quarter-finals, in which the Connacht and Munster champions will play, will face each other in the first semi-final. On the other side of the draw, the winners of the B quarter-finals, featuring the Leinster and Ulster champions, will play one another.
