The GAA has warned fans to be aware of a ticket scam involving the All-Ireland senior hurling and football championship finals.

This Sunday sees Tipperary take on Kilkenny in the hurling decider at Croke Park, while Dublin and Kerry face off in the football final on September 1st.

A statement on the Association’s website this morning confirmed that they’ve been made aware of “fake e-mails” offering hospitality tickets to supporters, with the Irish Independent also reporting today that the e-mails sent out offering 18 tickets for a corporate box at Croke Park at a cost of €2,500 for each match.

"The GAA has been made aware of fake e-mails in circulation claiming to have All-Ireland hospitality on suite level available," a statement on read this morning. 

"The Association is advising members and supporters to disregard these communications as the offering is completely false.

"Croke Park does not use any third party providers for hospitality offerings and all suites are in long term contracts. All hospitality for Sunday is fully booked.

"The GAA also reminds members and supporters to purchase match tickets from official sources only.

"The limited number of terrace tickets that went on sale this week for Sunday's finals have been sold out."
