A 41-story building in US city Chicago has been lit up with a 'Mayo For Sam' sign in a show of support for the Connacht champions ahead of Saturday's All-Ireland final.

The landmark Prudential Building carried the 'Mayo For Sam' slogan using lights on different floors.

The Chicago Federation of Labor made it clear that the organisation is firmly behind Mayo as they look to stop Dublin from claiming six All-Ireland titles on the trot.

Bob Reiter, president of the Chicago Federation of Labor, shared a picture of the Prudential Building with the message.

He said: “In honor of the fine gentlemen from the County Mayo playing in the All Ireland Game this weekend, we offer this token of appreciation from Chicago’s Unions and the Windy City. #MayoForSam.”

Throw-in for the big game on Saturday is at 5pm and you can watch it live on RTÉ 2 or Sky Sports Mix.

While Dessie Farrell's side are the heavy favourites, Mayo will be looking to cause an upset as they bid to end their 69-year wait for an All-Ireland title.
