GAAGO.ie will once again stream a substantial portion of Allianz League games in 2021, ensuring visibility for matches before spectators are allowed back into grounds around the country.

The streaming service, a joint venture ahead of its time when it was launched back in May 2014 by the GAA and RTÉ, will exclusively host 54 games across all four divisions of the Allianz Football League, and Divisions 1A and 1B of the Allianz Hurling League.

Any game from those divisions that is not televised on RTÉ TG4 or eir Sport will be available for streaming worldwide including Ireland.

Live coverage begins on the weekend of May 15th and 16th with 14 games including Mayo v Down in Division 2 Football, and Clare v Wexford and Kilkenny v Antrim in Division 1 Hurling.

Later weeks will see Galway v Roscommon and Tyrone v Monaghan in Division 1 Football. The full schedule will be confirmed as the Leagues progress, with commentary from Marty Morrissey, Darragh Maloney and Ger Canning among others.

As a result of Covid-19 restrictions, this is the second year the service will grant fans at home the ability to stream inter-county GAA games live or on-demand in 1080p HD.

In the truncated 2020 season, the platform played host to 21 Allianz League and 11 Championship games, having previously been available only to those living outside of Ireland.

There will be a charge but one for the whole season including Allianz League and Championship matches, likely to be more than 60 in total, at a cost of only €25.

Individual matches will be priced at €5 for Allianz League games and €8 for Championship matches.

Sign-up is via the GAAGO.ie website from May 12th, or the GAAGO iOS and Android apps. Supporters who download the app then have the option to cast the games to their TV. Supporters outside of Ireland can also look forward to reduced 2021 subscription prices.

RTÉ Sport’s televised live Allianz National Leagues coverage begins this Saturday 8th May with Limerick v Tipperary on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player while Allianz League Sunday returns on Sunday 9 May.

TG4 will carry four games over the weekend and eir Sport will have the Allianz Hurling League clash between Dublin and Kilkenny on Saturday afternoon.
