Kerry captain Fionn Fitzgerald and Galway captain David Burke lift the Allianz FL Division 1 and Allianz HL Division 1 trophies, respectively.

The provisional 2018 Allianz League fixtures have been announced, with a Croke Park double-header involving the Dublin footballers and hurlers getting proceedings underway on Saturday, January 27 according to a report in the Irish Sun.

Three-in-a-row All-Ireland champions Dublin will open their Allianz Football League Division 1 campaign against Kildare at 7pm in a repeat of this year's Leinster SFC final. This will be preceded by the hurlers' Division 1B opener against Offaly, which will be Pat Gilroy's first Allianz League game as hurling manager.

Five of Dublin's seven Allianz Football League Division 1 ties will be on Saturdays. 

Reigning Allianz Football League champions Kerry will begin at home to Donegal on Sunday, January 28, while All-Ireland hurling champions Galway will open their Allianz League defence in Division 1B at home to Antrim on Sunday, January 28.

The Division 1 football final is set to be played on April, 1, with the hurling equivalent due to take place a week or two earlier.
