Any predictions for this weekends League games. Do we think all the talk about ticket price increases will have an impact on attendances in comparison to last year?

I doubt it will have much influence on attendance in my opinion

Over 10,000 in Castlebar, despite the atrocious weather. That's a decent crowd to start the league.

Great crowd but not surprising considering mayo and Roscommon are too well supported teams.

Hopefully when we meet in da summer it will be a better game.

Talking to a few season ticket holders problems in Castlebar with attendance records, those who entered turnstile 1 didn't have their attendance recorded, bad enough sitting in a hurricane and rain getting soaked and frozen never mind arriving home and seeing that your attendance wasn't recorded, new year same nonsense, why don't they give up either a paper receipt or an instant email/text message to show that everything is recorded correctly, at least you can try to sort it out on the day instead of having to email Croke Park and arguing your case days later

A lot of people had their season tickets bought before the price hike and I'd say limerick hurling fans would have gone mad for season tickets this year with their team doing so well.

Not sure about current finances but they used to say they needed 35,000 in Croke Park for opening it to pay on the day.
