The Munster Hurling Championship game between Cork and Tipperary will be the first senior game to be played with the Hawkeye system in Semple Stadium.

The GAA announced on Friday morning, that the game on Sunday will feature the system that aids referees and umpires in correctly awarding points. The Thurles venue is the second in the country to get the system after Croke Park.

Hawkeye has been in use in all GAA games to take place in Croke Park since 2013. The system has widely been regarded as a success as it prepares to enter its fourth championship season.

Due to the differences between Croke Park and Semple Stadium there will be differences in how the system operates in both grounds.

The GAA have released graphics of how the system will look in Semple Stadium

In total eight cameras – four at each end of the pitch - will capture the flight and trajectory of the ball and relay that information to the Hawkeye Control Centre in the Kinnane Stand.

Requests for the use of the Hawkeye Score Review System will be made following communication between the match officials and indicated using the same hand signals that you will be familiar with from Croke Park.

Results will be displayed on the newly installed ribbon board at the Town End Goal and graphics will be pushed out on live TV broadcasts and on a large stadium screen when one is in use.

The graphical output from the Hawkeye Score Review shows the precise location of the shot relative to the posts.

Those decisions that result in a score (Tá) will have a green halo around the ball and those resulting in a miss (Níl) will have a red halo around the ball.

The Thurles venue will be expected to be one of the busiest this summer outside of Croke Park.
