Mayo look poised to play their entire Allianz League campaign outside of the county due to resurfacing work at Hastings Insurance Brokers MacHale Park.

Work at Mayo's home stadium will not be completed until May and while a temporary move to James Stephens Park in Ballina would seem to be the obvious solution, concerns about the capacity in Ballina mean that it will not be considered.

James Horan's side will compete in Division 1 of the league following their promotion last season and would have expected to play at least three home games in the competition.

However as Mayo GAA secretary Dermot Butler told the Mayo News, alternative arrangements outside of the county will have to be made.

"We've looked at every possibility but there’s just no way we can host the games," he said. "We’re now actively looking at alternatives and working with the authorities in Croke Park in that regard."

"We would have to bring in temporary stands and with the crowds expected for those games it just wouldn't be financially possible.

"A lot of work is going on behind the scenes at the moment to help Mayo as much as possible but it will all come down to logistics.

"We'll have to wait and see the draw and the dates and work from there, but the bottom line is that Mayo will be playing all the league games outside the county in 2022."
