Cats v Tribe II

GAA cut ticket prices by almost 40% for hurling replay

Stand tickets for Kilkenny v Galway Part II will now cost €50 while terrace tickets cost €25.

HURLING FANS WILL not have to shell out €80 for tickets to the All-Ireland final replay between Galway and Kilkenny later this month.

The GAA confirmed that ticket prices will be reduced by almost 40% for the replay, fixed for 30 September after the sides played out the first drawn final since 1959 in Croke Park on Sunday.

In a move sure to be welcomed by supporters, stand tickets will cost €50 — down from €80 — while terrace tickets are now priced at €25 — down from €40.

The GAA also expects to sell more than 5,000 children’s tickets, available at a cost of €10 for designated areas of the stadium.

Joe Canning’s stoppage-time equaliser was projected to net the GAA a bonus payday worth €5 million when the sides meet again in three weeks. The boost to the Association’s coffers is now expected to be in the region of €3 million following this morning’s announcement.
