Monaghan and Tyrone will play in front of 500 spectators

Supporters will make a return to the GAA stands in 4 county grounds in Ulster this weekend. O'Neill's Healy park Omagh, Brewster Park Enniskillen, the Athletic grounds Armagh and Corrigan Park in Belfast will all host Allianz national football league games in front of 500 supporters apiece. The GAA has given their backing to an easing of restrictions by the Northern Ireland Executive with a number of stipulations in place including each participating county been given 50 complimentary tickets while the remaining 400 will be sold locally via the hosting county board to ensure cross border travel for non-essential reasons is discouraged. The return of supporters to grounds will be the first since March of 2020, as all intercounty fixtures have taken place behind closed doors.

Monaghan will face Tyrone in Omagh on Saturday evening at 7:30 and the interim Farney manager David Mc Cague, knows that while they will be facing a partisan home support, it will be a lift for all players to have fans back on the terraces
