Ahead of tonight’s series premiere TG4 are proud to announce that the Underdogs will be taking-on one of the best Gaelic football teams in the Country at the end of the series; this year’s Allianz League Champions Mayo.
The match will be played under lights in Elverys MacHale Park in Castlebar, Co. Mayo on Saturday 26th October 2019 and TG4’s GAA Beo will provide live coverage on the night.
This year the Underdogs management team will have two new members joining former Cork Ladies Footballer Valerie Mulcahy. They are former Kerry All-Ireland winning Captain and Manager Mickey Ned O’Sullivan and Gaoth Dobhair legend and former Donegal Footballer Kevin Cassidy.
Over the next six dramatic weeks, the TG4 series will follow the players’ stories and personal journeys. Viewers will witness the months of preparation and intense training that it will take to transform a squad of Underdogs into a team of inter-county standard footballers.
The Underdogs is a unique group of players, from different GAA clubs all across the country. These footballers have never played at a senior intercounty championship level before.
James Horan, Mayo Manager said: “We are looking forward to being involved in the Underdogs event this October. A really interesting game in McHale Park that will see many talented and ambitious players take to the field.”
New Underdogs series begins on TG4 tonight at 9:30pm
