This year's Allianz Hurling and Football Leagues kick-off on January 27th, each team will be looking to hit the ground running as a strong league campaign will show the other counties their intentions for the season ahead.

This year’s League will be more contested than ever as teams which peaked during last year's championship campaign will hope to maintain their momentum.

Galway and Kerry will have their work cut out for them as they try to retain their crowns as Allianz Hurling and Football League champions, whilst their challengers attempt to knock them off their perch.
