TG4's Underdog's team will face Mayo in their final game of the new season. The game will take place at MacHale Park in Castlebar on Saturday, October 26th.
Underdogs is a reality TV show which sees footballers gather from around Ireland, taking part in trials to become part of the team. The only stipulation is that individuals cannot have played senior inter-county football.
Over six weeks, the squad will be whittled down to a 28-man group which will face Mayo.

"We are looking forward to being involved in the Underdogs event this October," said Mayo manager James Horan.
"A really interesting game in McHale Park that will see many talented and ambitious players take to the field."
