Clare could be set to face Armagh in a neutral venue in next years National Football League showdown.

The Orchard County are reportedly set to lose home advantage for the tie after being found to have broken training regulations before the start of this season’s championship.

Kieran McGeeney’s men travelled to Portugal during the designated club month of April while Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford will also lose home advantage for their clash with All Ireland champions Limerick after making the same trip.


The Banner had been due to visit the Athletics Grounds in Round 2 of their Division Two campaign which would have been Armagh’s first game at home, but that fixture could now be played elsewhere as a result of the sanction.

It’s understood both Armagh and Wexford will contest the ruling along with the hurlers of Waterford and footballers of Laois who were hit with similar punishment for holding training weekends in Ireland.
