Armagh fans will have to wait until February 6 for their first home game of the 2022 season.

The Orchard side have forfeited home advantage to accommodate a date change for this Thursday night's Doctor McKenna Cup opener with Cavan, which had originally been fixed for the Athletic Grounds but will now take place at Breffni Park at a new time of 7.45pm.

Kieran Mc Geeney's outfit will also travel to Ulster rivals Tyrone before making the trip to Croke Park at the end of the month to play Dublin in the first game of the NFL.

In the side's second outing they have a first home tie with the Red Hands, and their fans will be expecting all of their league games to be played at championship pace.

The Armagh management will be running the rule over several newcomers, and although Stefan Campbell (pictured) has been moved from the role of captain the Lurgan man is likely to again figure prominantly in the sides attack this season.
