Supporters purchase tickets.
The GAA has announced that it has cancelled a number of tickets for Sunday fortnight’s All-Ireland SFC semi-final between Dublin and Tyrone.
With tickets having gone on sale yesterday for the hotly-anticipated last-four Croke Park clash, it emerged last night that some were being sold on Seatwave – the sister site of Ticketmaster - at prices that are unrecognisable from their original values.
A statement from the Association in relation to ticket information for upcoming games since revealed that some tickets have been cancelled.
“The GAA can confirm that it has cancelled a number of tickets for the upcoming GAA Football semi-final meeting of Dublin and Tyrone on August 27,” it read.
“Requests have also been made directly to platforms selling tickets above face value to remove them from sale and the situation continues to be monitored by the GAA’s ticket office.
“Supporters and members are urged not to buy tickets from unofficial sources for above face value as they risk purchasing tickets that may be cancelled.”
It has also been confirmed that stand tickets are expected to sell out at Croke Park for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final double-header between Cork and Waterford (senior) and Cork and Dublin (minor).
