Saturday's Division 3 final between Offaly and Derry has been designated as a test event for the return of spectators, with 2,400 tickets being made available.

The GAA released a statement confirming the news this afternoon, issuing advice to those attending, saying that masks must be worn at the venue and urging spectators to be mindful of restrictions throughout.

Tickets can be accessed via Ticketmaster.

On Monday, it was confirmed that the Division 3 final would take place, with the game fixed for Croke Park on Saturday at 5pm.

It was originally envisaged that there would be no Division 3 final, due to the Faithful County commencing their Leinster championship campaign on the subsequent weekend.

However, both counties have agreed to play the game, with Offaly county board chairman Michael Duignan confirming the news to RTÉ yesterday.

Both counties hold an 100% record in their respective 2021 league campaigns, Rory Gallagher's Derry side having won all three games in Division 3 North before accounting for Limerick last weekend, while John Maughan's side disposed of the challenge of Fermanagh, having already amassed a flawless record from their three games in Division 3 South.
