THE GAA are asking people to buy their tickets in advance of Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC QF Phase 1 game between Kerry and Mayo.

They are telling fans — via a tweet earlier today — that there won’t be any tickets for the game on sale on the day at Fitzgerald Stadium and that the last remaining tickets are on sale now.

Tickets for the game — which some were expecting to sell-out well in advance — are still available on or at Supervalu and Centra stores as of 3.40pm on Thursday. The capacity in the stadium has been reduced from 38,000 to 31,900 for the game.

Last year’s Super 8 clash with Kildare on the August Bank Holiday weekend drew an official attendance of over 18,000 to Fitzgerald Stadium, with very few Kildare fans travelling for the clash, as the Lilywhites had nothing to play for.

Mayo fans travelled in their thousands for last week’s game in Limerick against rivals Galway and while a big Mayo crowd is expected on Sunday, an extra three hour round-trip and the prospect that many of them may not be getting back home until around midnight, might be the reason the game hasn’t sold out yet…especially as the game is not a ‘must-win’ one for them.

Let’s hope the Kerry fans do everything possible to try to get there on Sunday, as this could be the game which decides if Peter Keane’s charges make it to the final four.
