The League of Ireland Premier Division kicks off with two games tonight as Drogheda United host Waterford at 5.45pm and champions Shamrock Rovers face St Patrick's Athletic at 7.45pm.
Here we take a look ahead at the season.
Defending champions Shamrock Rovers are the clear favourites.
However, the loss of Jack Byrne and Aaron McEneff will be an issue for Stephen Bradley.
Dundalk cannot be ruled out either although question marks remain over the Lilywhites' managerial situation.
Shane Keegan has stepped up as team manager.
This may come as a surprise as Filippo Giovagnoli led the club to the Europa League group stages and an FAI Cup win after succeeding Vinny Perth in August.
However, Giovagnoli does not have a UEFA Pro License, hence the reshuffle.
The club insists Keegan and Giovagnoli's positions are clear so it will be interesting to see if it presents any issues.
Bohemians finished second last season and they will certainly be in the mix.
Keith Long has built a talented young team and while winning the title may be a step too far this year, they're certainly headed in that direction.
Liam Buckley's Sligo Rovers and St Pat's could also be dark horses to mount a serious title challenge.
Drogheda United v Waterford 5.45pm
