The Munster Senior Hurling League is an annual hurling competition organised by the Munster Council of the Gaelic Athletic Association since 2016 for the top inter-county teams in the province of Munster in Ireland.
The series of games are played during January. The Munster Senior Hurling League is effectively a pre-season tournament. It allows teams to blood new players and to experiment prior to the opening of the National Hurling League.
The Munster Senior Hurling League format sees all teams play each other over five weekends and the two top teams contesting the final. It was agreed by the Munster Council to exclude third level teams from the league.
The following stadia are frequently used during the Munster Senior Hurling League:
|Mallow||Mallow GAA Complex||8,000|
