Season ticket prices for GAA fans reportedly set for 25% increase

REPORTS HAVE started to surface that GAA fans could be set to receive 25 percent hike in season ticket prices if they want to attend games in 2022.

The season ticket programme in 2021 was scrapped by the GAA over uncertainty over fixture and also due to stadium capacity limits hampered the season, but the GAA are bringing back the scheme, but with an added price hike on top.

According to The Irish Independent a season ticket is now set to cost €150, when it would have been €120 last year. The club-plus package will now cost €250 instead of €200.

The season ticket guarantees supporters entry to league games, their elected county's first Championship match as well as a chance to purchase tickets for all Championship games with €5 off each ticket excluding the All-Ireland final.

The package also offers entry to every club game within the county, including the county final.

Each county will receive a €50 cut from every season ticket and €150 from club plus tickets. Mayo and Dublin have the highest quota of season tickets allowed at 3,500.

Despite the increase in season tickets, there will be no such rise in general admission tickets for intercounty games.
