The GAA has confirmed that there will be 50% capacity for the All-Ireland Football final between Mayo and Tyrone on Saturday week.
In a statement the association says it welcomed yesterday’s government announcement regarding the easing of restrictions for sporting events.
After careful consideration they have confirmed the 50% threshold and this means there will be an additional 1,150 tickets for distribution.
With approximately half of the tickets already distributed and unrealistic logistical challenges around processing Covid passports on a match day for a crowd in excess of 41,150 coming from all over the country and abroad, it was decided to proceed on the basis of a 50% attendance.
The GAA acknowledges the work of the Department of Sport on this issue and looks forward to the benefit that Tuesday evening’s announcement will have on club games in the weeks and months ahead.
