GAA streaming service GAAGO to show non-televised Allianz League games

By Conor Martin

GAA streaming service GAAGO has announced they will exclusively stream up to 23 games from the upcoming return of Allianz League action. A move that will give people across Ireland the chance to support their county despite them not being in the stands in person.

Previously available outside of Ireland only, the service will for the first time allow GAA fans at home to stream inter-county GAA games live or on demand and was brought in to help deal  Covid-19 restrictions, and ensures that fans can watch their counties matches from the comfort of their homes.

 Games from every division of the Allianz Football League will be available on the platform, including the finals of the Allianz Hurling League Divisions 2A, 2B and 3B are also among the games being streamed on GAAGO. Matches broadcast on domestic TV will continue to be available outside of Ireland only. Pay-per game coverage starts at €5, with county boards across Ireland supplying match passes for hospitals and care homes. The coverage will be produced by RTÉ Sport and Nemeton TV, and will see the familiar voices of Marty Morrissey, Ger Canning and John Kenny providing the commentary.

With the news sure to be welcomed by GAA fans across the 32 counties GAA President John Horan said: “Providing viewing access to games, albeit through a screen rather than in person for many of our members, has been of utmost importance in recent months and GAAGO’s first step into the domestic streaming market for upcoming Allianz League matches is a continuation of this endeavour. We are delighted to balance broadcast coverage of our remaining fixtures on GAAGO and our linear TV partner stations TG4, eir Sport and RTÉ. The distribution of complimentary match passes to hospitals and care homes in partnership with relevant GAA County Boards is also a very important and positive development.”
