  • 2012: During the winter of 2011/2012 proposals to change the structure of the Intermediate Football Championship by increasing the number of 15 teams in 2012 to 18 teams in 2014 were passed so that teams will have no byes during the group phase. To achieve this, in the 2012 championship, there will be 15 teams competing for promotion to the Senior championship with no relegation from the Intermediate or Senior championships. The two Junior football championship finalists will be promoted leaving the number of teams for the 2013 championship at 16 teams.
  • 2013: In the 2013 Intermediate championship, there will be 16 teams of one groups of 6 teams and two groups of 5 teams. There will once again be no relegation to the Junior championship and one team will be promoted to the Senior championship. One team will be relegate from Senior to Intermediate and the Junior championship finalists will be promoted, leaving 18 Intermediate teams for the start of the 2014 campaign.
  • 2014: Three groups of 6 teams with the top 3 from each group qualifying for the knock-out stages.
