Derry will play the winners of Down vs Donegal in the 2021 Ulster Senior Football Championship quarter-final, following Tuesday evening’s draw.
The Mournemen will host Donegal in the preliminary round meaning the Oak Leafers will have to wait to learn who their Championship opponents will be. Dates and times for these fixtures are yet to be confirmed.
The winners of Derry’s quarter-final will play the winners of Tyrone/Cavan in the Ulster SFC semi-final.
As in 2020, this year’s Football Championship will be a straight knockout championship, without a qualifier system.
