LIDL NFL 2020
Three in a row All-Ireland Senior Champions Dublin will kick start their 2020 NFL campaign with a home tie versus the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate winners Tipperary.
Looking ahead, Dublin have three mouth-watering fixtures to look forward to in Rounds 2, 3 and 4, when they face Mayo away from home, before welcoming Cork and Galway to the capital on successive weekends.
Cork defeated Dublin in an epic 2019 Lidl NFL Division 1 semi-final, after extra-time at Nowlan Park, but the Sky Blues gained revenge in front of 10,886 spectators at Croke Park in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior semi-final.

THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association earlier this month confirmed the groupings for the revamped 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship.
The 2020 All-Ireland series will be consist of two groups, with six teams in each, and the top two teams from each group will progress straight through to the All-Ireland semi-finals, following a minimum of five games.
Holders Dublin, who are aiming for a fourth successive TG4 All-Ireland Senior title, have been drawn in Group 2 alongside the 2020 Munster Champions, next year’s beaten Ulster and Connacht Finalists, Ulster’s fifth team, and a Munster semi-final loser.
Group 1 will contain the 2020 Ulster and Connacht champions, the beaten Munster Finalists, a Munster semi-final loser, and the beaten Ulster semi-finalists.
The bottom team in each group will contest a relegation play-off, unless they are a provincial winner, and thereby exempt from relegation.
The Provincial Championships must be organised on a knock-out basis, with the winners placed accordingly in the All-Ireland series groups. As Dublin are the only senior County within Leinster, they have been placed automatically in group 2.

The semi-finals have been scheduled for Sunday, August 23, with the top two teams in each group featuring.
