THE Cork hurlers will start their 2020 campaign against Kerry and Waterford, while the footballers are set to meet the Kingdom and Tipperary.

The Co-Op Superstores Munster Hurling League and McGrath Cup Football draws took place with two groups of three. 

The format for the preseason competitions means each team gets a home game, with the top teams from each group into the finals on the weekend of January 11-12.

Clare won both trophies at the start of 2019. In the football, Cork host Tipp and head over the border to face Kerry. 

In the hurling, they're at home to Kerry and away to Waterford. Those will be returning manager Kieran Kingston's first games back in charge and success in the Munster Hurling League previously served the group well in 2017, while Limerick used it as a springboard to success in 2018.
