The GAA's management committee met on Friday evening to consider two recommendations from the new football task force.
The task force was recently established by the organisation's president Larry McCarthy in the wake of Proposal B’s 50.6% vote at special congress.
The new task force seeks proposals on the potential restructure of the 2023 All-Ireland Senior Football Championships.
And the management committee agreed that two proposals should be circulated to counties for further consideration.
Central council will study those two proposals at their meeting on 22 January and decide which, if either, proposal should be submitted to annual congress in February as an ard chomhairle motion for change.
The proposals broadly reflect two main approaches.
The 'red’ proposal suggests a round robin provincial championship in February/March. This would be followed by a national league type championship from April to July. This template is seen as an ‘improved’ proposal.
A new ‘green’ proposal would see the retention of the current Allianz League and provincial championships.
These competitions would be followed by round robin groups in the Sam Maguire and Tailteann Cups.
The task force feels that both motions will raise standards by providing more games at an appropriate level for all teams, but especially developing counties.
The proposals will strive to retain any positive aspects of the current structures where possible and ensure that meaningless games are kept to a minimum.
The proposed new structures will fit into the available calendar footprint and retain the current number of opportunities to win a trophy and give all teams a chance of winning Sam Maguire.
Initial briefings for county and provincial officers, to outline the specifics of each proposal, will take place next week, with further briefings scheduled in early January.
