It’s a big night for DCU this evening as the University Gaelic Football team goes head to head with UCD in a high profile semi-final of the Electric Ireland Sigerson Cup.
The tie has added weight with DCU hosting the finals of this year’s third level competition.
Electric Ireland is backing the live streaming of the game on Facebook from 6 pm and with a host of inter-county stars lining out on both sides, it is likely to attract significant interest.
The two sides have beaten Queens University Belfast and Ulster University to get to the penultimate stage and DCU will be looking for revenge having fallen to their City rivals at the Quarter-final stage last year. In 2015 DCU came out on top at this stage of the competition.
The winners of the game will meet the winners of Carlow IT and Letterkenny IT, one of whom will be contesting a first-ever final.
There will be additional sponsorship interest in the Dublin Derby with UCD backed by AIB and the home side sporting the Bank of Ireland brand.
The game will be shown live at www.electricireland.ie/hec.
Join us tomorrow when we will be looking at a review of Trinity College Dublin’s Sporting Strategy
