This month's Connacht Senior Football final has been moved to Croke Park. 

The July 25 meeting of Galway and Mayo will mark the first time the provincial decider has been played outside of Connacht itself.

Connacht GAA have taken the step to allow a larger number of people attend the game.

Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, capacity would have been limited to 3,600 had the game gone ahead as planned at Elverys MacHale Park.

The move to Croke Park will allow 18,000 fans attend the match.

Connacht GAA say they will release ticket details in due course.
