GARVEY’S Tralee Warriors Super League showdown with Templeogue at the Tralee Sports Complex on Saturday night is an all ticket affair.

The highly anticipated clash between two of the League’s heavyweights could potentially decide the outcome of the title and is shaping up as the biggest game of the season for both teams.

Warriors Club Chairman Terry O’Brien says the massive interest in the game and the significance of the outcome prompted the move to make the fixture ticket only; “This is the biggest game in the Super League this season and we want to ensure that as many people as possible can come along and support the Warriors in their bid for glory. Our season ticket holders will be admitted by presenting their season ticket in the usual way. By selling the rest of the tickets in advance we can ensure our fans get to enjoy the game of the season.”.

Tickets for the game will on sale from Garvey’s Supervalu on Rock St., Tralee from 2.00pm today, Tuesday.

They will be priced as normal at €8 for adults and €5 for children. Season ticket holders will gain admission by presenting their season ticket at the Complex on Saturday night as usual.

Templeogue lead the competition on 39 points with four losses to date. The Warriors are currently in second place on 33 points and have also lost just four games.

They are level on points with UCD Marian but ahead of them by virtue of points difference. The Tralee side have two games in hand on the League leaders and a game in hand on UCD Marian so still have their destiny in their own hands.

A win for the Warriors on Saturday night would see them cut the gap on Templeogue to three points and in turn move three points clear of UCD Marian. After that if they were to win their four remaining games they would win the League.

As if the situation needed any more intrigue, the Warriors final two League fixtures are a double header against UCD Marian, away in Belfield at 5.00pm on Saturday 23rd, and at home in the Complex 24 hours later.

However defeat to Templeogue on Saturday night would see the Dublin side move into prime position to seal the League title by winning their remaining games away to UCC Demons and Moycullen.

Doors open at the Tralee Sports Complex at 6.15pm for the game on Saturday night. Tip off is at 7.30pm.
