Ticket Prices Are Not Being Reduced For The National League Final Replay

Ticket Prices Are Not Being Reduced For The National League Final Replay
By PJ Browne

Nearly 20,000 were at Semple Stadium on Sunday to see Clare and Waterford play out a draw in the National League Final.

A long-range Maurice Shanahan free at the death drew the sides level and ensured the two teams would have to face each other again this Sunday at the same venue.

Normally, for replays during the Championship, ticket prices are reduced. That will not be the case for this weekend's National League replay.

Adult stand tickets will again be priced at €25 while tickets for U16s will be €5.

The GAA will certainly be hoping that fans remember extra-time - which was a pulsating affair - rather than the opening 70 minutes which most certainly was not.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Clare secretary Pat Fitzgerald bemoaned that there would be no concession on ticket prices.

It’s disappointing to see the ticket prices are the same because a lot of people here have been giving out about the cost.

I would have hoped they would be looked at. If they were reduced we would get a better crowd, I’m sure of that.

It is a replay and it definitely should have been looked at.

We all know times are tough at the moment and the cost of living is expensive.

Bringing three or four people from the same household to a game would be fairly expensive but people would also appreciate seeing a reduction and it would encourage more people to go as well.
