eir Sport have announced details of their coverage of this year’s Allianz League, which gets underway on Saturday January 27th.
Across seven weekends, eir Sport will broadcast 17 Allianz League games exclusively live with reigning All-Ireland senior football champions Dublin set to feature four times.
Two double-headers will get the action underway on the first weekend as Dublin’s Senior hurlers, under the management of All-Ireland winning football boss Pat Gilroy, take on Offaly before Jim Gavin’s All-Ireland winning panel face Leinster rivals Kildare at Croke Park. On the same evening, the Cork footballers and hurlers face Tipperary and Kilkenny respectively.
The following weekend defending football League champions Kerry travel to Mayo, with beaten All-Ireland finalists Waterford in Thurles to take on Tipperary.
“We are determined to offer our viewers the very best content and the 17 live games we will broadcast in our 2018 Allianz League coverage fall into this category,” Glen Killane, Managing Director of eir TV and Sport, commented at today’s announcement.
“Our Allianz League coverage along with our recent successful Club Championship coverage, GAA online clip rights and archive rights means eir sport is building its portfolio of GAA content ensuring GAA lovers don’t miss any of the action.”
