Kerry GAA have opted not to have the County Senior Football Final on Saturday week televised by RTE, and will instead live stream the game themselves.

County Board chairman Tim Murphy told The Kerryman that an approach was made by RTE a couple of weeks ago with a view to a live broadcast of the county football final, but that offer has been rejected in favour of continuing with the live streaming service for the showdown between East Kerry and Mid Kerry.

Kerry GAA would have been guaranteed a substantial fee from the national broadcaster, but as they did last year with the county final between East Kerry and Dr Crokes, Kerry GAA have opted not to have the final televised.
