Football heavyweights Mayo and Tyrone will be among the 16 teams who will know their fate when the first qualifier draw of the 2018 championship takes place next Monday.

The final six provincial football quarter-finals are being decided over the weekend with the losers of Laois/Westmeath, Carlow/Kildare, Wicklow/Dublin and Longford/Meath in Leinster, in addition to the losers of Derry/Donegal and Down/Antrim in Ulster, joining 10 other teams. They are Mayo, London, Limerick, Waterford, Wexford, Offaly, Louth, Tyrone, Cavan and Armagh.

Unlike recent years there is no A and B section so it's open for all 16 teams to play against each other.

Counties that operated in Division 3 and Division 4 of the league will have home advantage.

If the Division 3 and 4 teams are drawn against each other, the first team out will then have home advantage.

Meanwhile, Leinster have decided not to change the throw-in times for their football/hurling double bill in Bord na Móna O'Connor Park on Saturday to avoid a clash with Liverpool's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The throw-in for the Westmeath and Laois football quarter-final is 5.0 with Offaly and Wexford hurling clash starting at 7.0.

The Champions League final starts at 7.45 and will attract a lot of interest because of Liverpool's large Irish fan base.

Leinster GAA chairman Jim Bolger indicated at the launch of the province's football championship earlier this month that they would take soundings from the competing counties before making a decision.

Connacht Council has moved its semi-final between Roscommon and Leitrim to 5.30 on Saturday but Ulster and Munster have kept their original times, 7.0 in each case, for Cork and Tipperary (Munster football) and Down/Antrim (Ulster football).
