Armagh GAA kick off their Allianz National League campaign next season with a tricky away tie to seven-time Division One winners Meath in Navan on January 31.

The Orchard men will however have four home games as opposed to the three away from the Athletic Grounds this season.

Four of those seven ties will also be Ulster derbies with Fermanagh and Derry in the cathedral city – the latter on the final day of the campaign, while Armagh travel to Breffni Park in what will be a prelude to the championship opener in June.
