Galway have penned a letter to FIFA President Gianni Infantino requesting that the kick-off time for the World Cup final on Sunday week is moved to avoid a clash with the Tribesmen's All-Ireland SFC clash with Kerry.

The global tournament reaches its climax in eight days' time but the decider coincides with the first round of Super 8s action. 

And Galway have decided to take matters into their own hands by sending a plea to FIFA's HQ in Zurich. 

The letter, signed by county secretary Seán Ó hEídhín, reads:

"Gianni a chara. I write to formally request that you consider delaying the kick-off in your final on Sunday week, 15 July 2019, from 4pm (GMT) to 6pm (GMT).

"As it stands your final clashes with the Galway v Kerry game in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final Phase 1 game, which will throw in at 4pm (GMT) in Croke Park and will finish at 5.25pm, with no extra-time to be played.

"If this clash is not addressed by FIFA then your worldwide audience will be diminished as many of (the) supporters will give priority to attending and watching the Galway v Kerry game.

"An additional advantage for delaying your kick-off to 6pm is that even if the game goes to extra-time and a penalty shootout, your game will be finished in time for the Sunday Game at 9.30pm."

Your move Gianni...
