2,400 spectators permitted to attend Division 3 football final

June 15, 2021

Croke Park will be back open to spectators on Saturday.

The GAA has confirmed that 2,400 spectators will be permitted to attend Saturday's Allianz Football League Division 3 final at Croke Park.

GAA headquarters will welcome supporters to inter-county matches for the first time in 15 months when Derry take on Offaly in the decider which has been designated as one of the pilot events to trial the return of spectators.  

Given the condensed fixtures calendar, the counties had been expected to share the honours, with Offaly opening their Leinster SFC campaign against Louth on Sunday week.

However, they have agreed to meet to decide the title, throw-in is at 5pm. Tickets for the match are available to purchase here.

“We are asking all of those who hope to attend to be mindful of restrictions that will be in place and to co-operate with stewards at all times while in the stadium,” a GAA statement reads.

“Social distancing will be in operation and patrons will be required to wear masks for the duration of their visit.  

“We are also reminding supporters of the ongoing pandemic restrictions which still apply relating to pre and post-match gatherings and in planning journeys to and from the stadium.  

“The GAA looks forward to welcoming spectators back to our fixtures in the weeks and months ahead and is working hard to ensure the safety of those who will be present at all of our venues.”
