Attendances 2017

Replying To dahayeser:  "30,013 Tipp v Cork

14,661 Mayo v Sligo
10,083 Donegal v Antrim
7,473 Monaghan v Fermanagh

Interesting how the football attendances are pretty much on a par with the league crowds those counties get. Go back 20 years and there would be a few thousand more there for championship but the league crowd would be very small."
Said the same at the game in Castlebar. The attendance was roughly the same for the Donegal league game. I think people are bored with the current championship format at least in the early rounds. There are exceptions though....the Hurling had a great crowd.

Galway v Mayo will have over 20,000 at it in three weeks time.

Yes that was the official attendance but Under 16's were not charged so I don't believe they would be counted.

in 2014 limerick v cork minor hurling munster semi got 4k (not inc kids) on wednesday night , 2013 and 2014 munster minor finals (both v waterford) went to replays on wednesday night and got 6k approx, for the 2013 game they originally had one stand open , shortly before throw in they opened opposite stand and lots of people walked accross pitch to go to other stand , this is few mins before game while playes did warm up

2015 under 21 final had around 18k mostly limerick - the underage gaa gets phenomenal support

A minor football game at the same stage of the championship as a senior hurling game, both local derbys, with the minor getting more supporters is surprising (although there would be a stronger football following in Cavan per capita than pretty much anywhere else).

I remember the day of our county final last year, Dundalk were playing at home in the game where a win won them the title, and there were more than twice as many people at the Cavan final.

GAA is still absolutely streets ahead of all other sports in this country and will continue to be for years to come!

Clare vs Limerick - 19,168

dahayeser (Cork) - 06/06/2017 17:24:36    1995791

Galway Mayo 23,000+
Wexford Kilkenny 18,467
Offaly Westmeath 8,723
Clare Kerry 5,786
Cork Tipp 4,570
Ring, Rackard and Magher Cups in Croke Park 5,618

Didn't see a figure for Cavan - Monaghan.

Small crowd at both Munster semi finals. Clare Kerry usually attracts more.

Given last years result combined with Tipps rise and Corks decline I though that fixture would attract more too. I know we are a disaster in Cork but I expected Tipp would bring a few thousand to see if they could take Cork for a second year in a row!

5600 for Ring/Rackard/Meagher Hurling finals wouldn't be too bad if they were played in smaller ground to improve atmosphere. I totally understand the players wanting to play in Croke Park however.
The GAA should be aiming to get the crowd numbers up to about 10-15K for these over next few years.

Great win for the Oakleafers. Back where we belong.

It would seem to me like the crowds & attendance figures for the hurling & football provincial championships thus far are up on the last couple of years. Any reasons why?

Just speculating but there's been some interesting match ups so far this year in the Provincial championships.

The hurling looks open this year. In the football Tipp Cork, Mayo Galway and Monaghan Cavan were all tight enough with the bookies, no favourite was shorter than 1-2. Going to be similar with Donegal Tyrone and Kildare Meath.

You'd expect good crowds at the Provincial finals this year. Cork Kerry, Meath/Kildare Dublin, Munster hurling final should be a close game either way, Leinster hurling final is a novel pairing. I'd like a Donegal Monaghan Ulster final, I think both teams are more expansive now than recent years.

Cavanman Monaghan have played Cavan 3 times in the last few years ....twice in Breffni and on each occasion Monaghan supporters outnumbered Cavan's.....to a very great extent particularly on the 1st 2 occasions ....maybe that comes with a winning team !

Yeah probably.

Sky sports subscriptions appear to be down also, might be contributing small to people having more money to go to live games.
