ARMAGH and Galway have submitted a joint request to the CCCC for their round three group stage game to be played in Croke Park.
The Gaelic Life understands a joint bid has been submitted today. The game has been scheduled for Avant Money Páirc Sean Mác Diarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday 18 June.
The Leitrim venue holds a maximum capacity of 9,331 but due to the counties involved, a much higher attendance is to be expected.
As of today, tickets for the game have yet to go on general sale, which would suggest a possible consideration for changing the venue by the CCCC.
Should tickets go on general sale, it will be on a first come first serve basis, which could lead to a huge number of disappointment supporters.
Armagh and Galway clashed in the All-Ireland quarter-final last season and played out a hugely entertaining and dramatic affair.
Penalties were required to settle the game after extra time, the first ever in the SFC to be decided via a shoutout.
Over 35,000 fans attended that epic encounter, with Galway eventually edging out the Orchard County, winning 4-1, and ended up in the All-Ireland final where they lost to Kerry.
