With Mayo booking their place in the All Ireland semi-final for the fifth time in a row last Saturday with a win over Donegal, all roads lead to Croke Park on Sunday August 30 for what promises to be an enthralling encounter with Dublin in the final four showdown. With ticket demand for the game expected to be at fever pitch levels, the Mayo GAA county board has announced its ticketing details for the big game.
The county board has advised that all club orders are to be submitted no later than 9pm on Wednesday August 19. No additional orders from clubs will be accepted after this time. Orders for north and south clubs will be available for collection Saturday August 22 from 2pm to 4pm. Orders for east and west clubs will be available for collection Sunday August 23 from 4pm to 6pm. Tickets will be distributed from the ticket booths at the bottom of the car park at Elverys MacHale Park. All orders for club and group passes need to be with Croke Park by today, August 14.
Cáirde Mhaigheo season ticket holders will receive an email with all the details in relation to their ticket for the semi-final. The match day ticket can be printed off from the comfort of your own home. The county board would also encourage that season ticket holders login in to their online accounts to check their debit/credit card details are correct.
For the general public, ticket sales from the county board, which will be subject to availability, will be available on the week leading up to the match. There will absolutely no ticket sales to the general public before this stage. It is anticipated that this match will be a sell-out so ticket availability will be limited. There is a limited number of tickets available on gaa.tickets.ie and through participating SuperValu and Centra stores, and supporters are encouraged to try these first to avoid disappointment on match week.
