The Allianz Football League game between Antrim and Waterford will now go ahead after all.
Antrim have now offered to travel to Dundalk for the Division 4 match on Saturday.
Waterford County Board had confirmed on Thursday that they would not travel to Portglenone for tomorrow’s game.
Some Waterford players had indicated that their employers expected them to self-isolate for 14 days if they travelled to Antrim.
The Antrim County Board initially offered to travel to Belfast but this was rejected by Waterford.
Dundalk was then suggested as an option with Waterford willing to travel to the Geraldines Louth GAA ground.
The Antrim County Board said in a statement:
“We believe the integrity of the league needs to be upheld. If we are good enough to collect 2pts we will do it in a fair and manly manner on the field of play.”
