The Munster Council have opted to employ a round-robin system for next year’s provincial minor hurling championship, in tandem with the new senior structure.
Each game in the minor championship will act as a curtain-raiser for its senior equivalent, with the top two sides then advancing to the final.
However, while the third-placed senior side will take part in a play-off for a place in the All-Ireland semi-finals, at minor level only the two finalists will advance to the All-Ireland series.
Meanwhile, the draw for the minor football championship was deferred to a later date, again pending agreement on the format.
