CBL Statement & 2022 / 2023 Divisions Announced

Since its inception in 1952, the Cork Business League has always been a progressive league. We have entered in many representative teams in the Oscar Traynor Cup down through the years, we pride ourselves in supporting local Cork businesses while also allowing global organisations to join the the league, we were one of the first leagues in the country to trial the new 5 substitutes rule (previously 3), and we re-branded in 2019 with new social media platforms and new objectives to meet.

This season we continue our growth by confirming 26 teams into the CBL 2022 / 2023 season. This shows that there has been a huge up-take in the CBL in recent times, and is a sign of good things to come for the long-term improvement of our league.

The CBL management committee has the power to regulate its own procedures and to take any whatever action it deems necessary in order to promote and / or uphold the integrity of the CBL. Without prejudice, the management committee determines, in its absolute discretion, the structure and format of all league and cup competitions, including how teams (and how many teams) are promoted and relegated each season.

For the 2022 / 2023 season, we have 2 divisions, the Premier Division (comprised of 11 teams), and the First Division (comprised of 15 teams). See below for the list of teams in each division.
