It expects the dates to be confirmed by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Thursday, 20 August.

Clubs must first comply with the Association's club readiness guidance.

The date for the first round of local fixtures, which be played behind closed doors, relates to adult, youth and children's teams.

The shinty season usually runs from March to September/October.
