RTÉ are looking for the biggest Mayo and Dublin fans around to appear on Up for the Match

Know anyone who would be suitable?

Up for the Match might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for many GAA followers, it makes for essential viewing on the night before the All-Ireland football and hurling finals every year.

A mostly light-hearted take on the big game before the tension ratchets up the following day, it’s usually good for a few laughs and a little something out of the ordinary; witness John Mullane proposing that Gráinne Seoige ride a horse naked in Galway in the event of a Tribesmen victory on Sunday, for example.

That, of course, never happened… or at least not yet.

Last Saturday’s Up for the Match also featured two of Galway and Waterford’s biggest hurling fans and now Des and Gráinne are looking to find their Dublin and Mayo equivalents for a broadcast on Saturday, September 16 ahead of the football decider the following day.

If you fit the bill or you know someone who does, all you have to do to enter is to send in your videos to biggestfan@rte.ie outlining why you believe you are either Dublin or Mayo’s biggest fan.

RTÉ would rather if the videos were filmed in landscape rather than portrait and the more imaginative or creative you can be, the better, as a decision on the best offerings will be based on content that really stands out.

A selection of the best videos will be broadcast on the show and the two best efforts will win two tickets to the live TV show, overnight accommodation at a hotel in Dublin on the night and *drum roll please* a pair of tickets each to the All-Ireland Football Final, courtesy of GAAGO.

You can listen to Gráinne outlining how to enter below; a reminder to send your effort to biggestfan@rte.ie with your county name in the subject heading, and a daytime telephone number included in the email.

The closing date for the receipt of entries is Tuesday, September 12.
