A skydiver missed their bearings badly ahead of the American Football match at Croke Park today and ended up on the nearby DART lines.

The Croke Park Classic - the American football college match taking place between Penn State and the University of Central Florida – didn't get off to the ideal ceremonial start after a skydiver bringing the match ball badly missed his landing mark.

Skydivers representing both teams were supposed to land on the pitch at GAA HQ as part of the pre-game buildup, with Penn State getting the early upper hand when the UFC skydiver ended up behind Hill 16.
