Good question.

Not sure.  Would it be the New Year?

Great idea though, pick a game and get a place booked asap. Good bit cheaper if you book it earlier.

I think they were released around December last year.

should the league final be played outside of croke park and a different ground each year what are the attendances for league finals would they get a full crowd if played in  smaller ground and i think its different from club finals as teams in division 1 usually get to  an opportunity to play in croke park often anyway and the tailteaan cup gives small teams more opportunity now to play there  so its not  the case of but your denying there dream of playing in croke park.

I think advertisers might have a bigger say over fans.
There will be loads to discuss about this year. Penalty shootouts, no time for replays, rushed All Ireland and how it will pan out next year with the mini leagues.

With a more congested season next year HQ are already looking at what they can drop to make room. Connacht GAA chief John Prenty has called for league finals to be scrapped.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

that leads  to more dead rubbers teams that cant get 1st or be relegated have nothing to play for   if they had a chance to get 2nd to make a league final they still have something to play for

He'll probably be looking to play the Connacht FBD pre season comp in his centre again next Jan also.
