The Euro T20 Slam wasn't the only competition this week to unveil their fixtures. The details of the NW matches were also published, albeit without the Bollywood glamour.

Premiership sides will play seven matches against their top flight rivals in the 'T20 Blast' with most games scheduled for Friday nights.

The increase in matches is in part a response to Ireland's lowly T20 ranking and is an effort to remedy the fact that they play the format significantly less than many of their main rivals, for whom the short form is their bread and butter.

Brigade are the current holders and they start their defence with an away trip to Strabane on May 17th.

The format is the same in the Championship equivalent, although with one game less due to the seven team league.

Newbuildings won the competition last year, and they host the opening game on Friday May 17th when they play Ardmore.

The finals day is scheduled for Sunday August 11th at Strabane.
