New Laois boss Tomás Ó Flatharta knows that a strong showing in the Allianz League can lead to a successful summer.
All four finalists from the last two years, Mayo, Cork, Tyrone and Dublin, have been involved in the business end of the Championship in recent seasons.
Under Justin McNulty, the O’Moore County just missed out on promotion to Division 2 last year, and former Westmeath and Galway manager Ó Flatharta says he recognises the value of a good NFL campaign.
He told RTÉ Sport: “The way that teams have performed over the last number of years has proven that [it is a springboard for the summer]. Teams that have done well in the league have actually done well in the Championship.
“It really starts this weekend. A number of years ago this competition wouldn't have been on many people’s radar at all.
“The Allianz League over the last number of years has taken on a new dimension and if you do well in the league there’s a good chance you’ll be well prepared going into the Championship.”
Laois host 2012 All-Ireland champions Donegal in Portlaoise on Sunday.
