14 teams will contest the Hotel Kilmore Intermediate Football Championship.

4 teams will play in a Preliminary Round, the 2 winners will enter Round 1 while the two losers will enter the “back door side” of the draw. 12 teams, made up of the 2 Preliminary Round winners and the 10 teams already through to Round, 1 will compete in Round 1 with 6 winners qualifying for the quarter final (Round 4). The 6 losers from Round 1 will join the 2 losers from the preliminary round on the “back door” side of the draw. These 8 teams will then be drawn against each other in Rounds 2 & 3 with the eventual two winners qualifying for the quarter final (Round 4). From Round 4 on (quarter finals) the competition will be “knock out”. Quarter Final/Semi-final pairings will be based on an open draw.

The Preliminary Round & Round 1 are Championship proper while Rounds 2 & 3 are “back door” Rounds
