Tipperary hurling captain Brendan Maher
Tipperary's hurlers will open their 2017 National Hurling League campaign against Dublin under the lights of Croke Park at 5pm on Saturday evening February 11.
The match is a double bill with Dublin's clash with Tyrone in the National Football League, which gets underway at 7pm.
The Tipperary footballers, meanwhile, will begin their National Football League programme with a game against Antrim in Clonmel Sportsfield on Sunday February 5.
On a pilot basis in 2017, the Allianz League Hurling quarter-finals and semi-finals will finish on the day the games are played, avoiding the need for replays.
If games in these competitions are level after two separate periods of extra time have been played, the outcome will be decided by a free-taking competition.
No semi-finals will be played in the Allianz Football League. The finals of the Allianz Football Leagues and the Division 1 Hurling League final will be played a fortnight earlier than they have been up to now, which the GAA says will free up additional time for club programmes.
