In 2010, Comhairle Uladh have made a few changes to the set-up and structure of the event to meet with the core values of the tournament.  These are:

1.       The tournament will be played over two days.

2.       Day one will involve all entrants who will play off in a league format

3.       Each host facility will have a minimum of two pitches to meet the needs of the competition.

a.       Each venue should have First Aid cover in attendance for the duration of the event.

4.       Panels for Feile Uladh 2010 must not exceed 21 players.

a.       There shall be unlimited substitutions in all games

b.      ALL players MUST be played in all games

5.       There will be two groups in each Division with a minimum of five and maximum of six teams in each group.

a.       Each team will therefore play a minimum of four games of 15 minutes each way, which will provide 120 minutes of hurling, for each team, on the day.

b.      Should a group contain less than five teams then the playing time of each game will be increased to ensure that a minimum of 120 minutes of hurling will be played by each team – i.e. if there are four teams in the group, each team will play three games of 20 minutes each half.

6. The winners of each group will play in a final, which will be played on Saturday 15th May.

7. All finals will be played together in one venue with 20 minutes each half.
