It’s one of our favourite shows of the year and TG4’s Underdogs returned to screens last night for a run that will culminate in the team taking on Mayo next month.
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.
“We are looking forward to being involved in the Underdogs event this October,” said Mayo Manager James Horan.
“A really interesting game in McHale Park that will see many talented and ambitious players take to the field.”
The series is sponsored by Insuremyvan.ie.
“Insuremyvan.ie started as a small business but, applying the same spirit and hard work we’ll see from the Underdogs team we have grown to be market leader in van insurance across Ireland,” said Managing Director Jonathan Hehir
