Does every club have floodlights

No. Infact very few do.

i was thinking about this also, does this mean there will be no friday night championship games this season... I can't see the use of the athletic grounds being a go-to option

Depends really, Fintona and the Dungannon Hurling pitch last year were really the saviours of the Championship. This year could be different with the lack of qualifiers maybe easing up the club calender but you would still have to expect Senior Championship will not be to September no matter how Tyrone do so I would expect any Friday night game to be at either of those locations. We might return to the days of 4 games Saturday and the same Sunday.

I don't think Healy park is closing now this season, change of plans, but time will tell

It was a fantastic venue however would only cater fro Junior and some intermediate. Atmosphere was great due to spectator set up.
We had a junior champo game their with a reasonable big crowd there and it was tight goin for parking and getting into game on time.

Off me head, venues that can hold floodlight fixtures...

* Stewartstown
* Greencastle
* Eoghan Ruadh, Dungannon
* Fintona (Training)
* Dromore (Training)
* Carrickmore (Training)

To add, has the work at Garvaghy on its floodlight pitch been completed, and is Strabane's training pitch suitably floodlight?

Garvaghey floodlite pitch looked pretty much ready a few weeks ago. Strabanes pitch and floodlights are top class but there is no fence around the pitch which Id assume you would need.

Greencastles floodlights are IMO not good enough to host a match (unless they have been upgraddd in the last year?) although night matches have been played there recently

Our training pitch wouldn't be great for hosting a match.. With the side pitch next the river under development the training pitch is having to take serious football - I think it is planned for it to be tore up next year and drained which is badly needed.

Championship matches should not be played on training pitches end of story.

Agreed, no training pitches/bogs or silage fields.. Hopefully this takes Dungannon out of the equation

If Cassidy is back on board they could certainly be contenders.
