Season Tickets 2022

(Oldest Posts First)

Any word on season tickets for 2022. Would be handy as a Christmas present!

Or is there a chance the 2022 Championship could still be restructured at Congress in Feb? I would have thought that would be too late for 2022 no matter what proposal and how many votes it gets.

There was talk that they'll be renewed in November. So I take it we'll be getting emails soon enough.

Looks like season tickets are back ..... with a new improved price ....... €150

Other than being guaranteed an All Ireland ticket if your county is lucky enough to get there, there is not much value there......... unless they plan to increase the price of league games

Feck I remember them being around €80/€90 the first few years or am I imagining that?

Still great to have em back.

It is for the 4 Counties that regularly get to AI football Finals.
Looks like awful bad value to the rest of us.

That's true, maybe they could do a price scale, that would be fairer.

Still every county will get at least 7 games some will get 8 and the first round of the championship will be free.

Apparently it is not certain that an AI ticket will be included this year.

I think that the €150 covers D1 & 2 teams. They are usually cheaper for D 3 & 4 teams where admission prices are €15.

With the prices quoted it seems that Admission prices will increase for 2022.

Sure it's no good without the allireland tickets.

Surely if AI ticket is not included there is no reason to buy one. 7 x €20 = €140 for League games. So in theory u get first championship game for €10. Law of averages you will miss at least 1 league game so .........

I just don't get it. Wouldn't it be great to have big crowds at all league games instead of this approach. Probably make as much money ...... and I don't begrudge the gaa making money because it is important to run any organisation. I just think packed stadiums are a better way to go.

Season tickets are available lads, got an email this morning saying to be eligible for an allireland ticket if your team make the final then you can only miss 1 championship game.

I think the rule was that you had to attend 80% of your team's matches to be eligible for a ticket.

I think the old rule was 60% but they seem to have scrapped it in favour of giving you one opt out for Championship instead. Miss 2 or more Championship games and you won't get an AI final ticket if your team qualify. It is probably better as it will probably reduce the number of people travelling the length of the country for the league fixtures just to get their 60%. I assume this is to help try reduce the spread of Covid. They have also got rid of any hard copy tickets and also the cards, I assume this is also to stop them being passed around which might help reduce Covid spreading. The GAA seems fully set on going fully digital with the tickets, they've started to roll it out now at County Championship games, no more paying at the gate in a lot of counties.

I think it was something like 62% of all games league and championship you had to attend.

That's handy but iv had problems in the past with their scanners where as they scanned me into the game and it never showed up that I was at the game, with such tight margins I can see trouble ahead.
