Ticket Allocation

(Oldest Posts First)

With more and more tickets for the semi finals being removed from clubs and being put on sale with local shops or through ticketmaster, do everyone think that this situation will remain for the final.

Basically if Tyrone win on Sunday could I go straight on to ticketmaster and try to get a ticket for the final or will the GAA revert back to the traditional allocation process?

There will be no tickets for the final on sale online. In either code.


Last year a small number of unsold tickets for the nally stand for the hurling final were released online.

No tickets I'll go on general sale for Tyrone final the only time they put any on sale is if they are sent back from Clubs . There will be no tickets coming back from Clubs in Dublin Tyrone or Mayo

Back to the traditional application process including tickets for those season ticket holders in participating counties. If you could source a hurling final ticket somehow, you might be able to swap for a football final ticket with someone.

Thanks guys,

I will actually get a ticket through my club but I was just wondering what the procedure would be based a the unusual issue with semi-final ticket allocations.

Don't think I will have much to worry about though! Can't see us beating the dubs this weekend anyway.

hardly more and more tickets going on public sale
if anything its a disgrace the little amount that went on sale for this game in supervalu centra and gaa.ie
when you consider the vast majority of tickets all year were sold for games through these avenues and not clubs.

Speaking to a guy in work that's a Dub season ticket holder, his ticket is right down the front of the lower cusack. He said that throughout the year they usually sit in the exact same seats nearer the back of the stand under cover. But once the semi finals roll in, then it's down to the front with you.
Is this the norm with the season ticket holders? In previous finals, Kerry, Mayo and Donegal supporters; were you guys pushed down the front too?

Luck off the draw. In clones for semi final I was at the very front row. Ulster final I was in the middle.
Same as Croke park. I was 3 rows up from the sideline last day. Sunday I'm Y.
I believe the seats are selected randomly.

I have the season ticket as well and it's common enough to be moved around a bit within the same few sections of the lower Cusack. I'm surprised that the lad you know is usually in the same seats for every game. I've the season ticket since 2011 and don't think I've been in the same seats twice, although I'm often seated close to the same groups of people no matter what section we are in. As for getting moved around more towards the end of the season, I think it's just a case of more demand for the same seats. For example, if Dublin and Mayo meet there are 5000 season ticket holders to get looked after in the same few sections, so inevitably some people will be pushed further out from the prime seats.

I'm a season ticket holder years now and have never been in the same seats. Same block maybe but different rows and seats everytime. Also different tiers. Lower Cusack for the League and Leinster. Upper Cusack for the business end of the Championship between 705 and 706.

Oh my heart bleeds for him. At the quarter finals all the dubs were sitting under cover and tyrone Monaghan and Armagh supporters out in the rain. Hope it lashes down on sunday

Actually he was down the front in that game too, it wasn't all Dublin season ticket holders under that cover

and if its the other way around and the sun is shining on Sunday you will probably be giving out about Dublin supporters sitting out in the sunshine while the poor Tyrone fans are stuck in the shade at the back of the stand.

Where would you rather sit? At the front, middle or back?
