The capacity for this Saturday’s All-Ireland SHC qualifiers has been increased after much criticism of the previous limit that was set.
Semple Stadium will now host 4,400 spectators for the clash of Waterford and Galway while the LIT Gaelic Grounds will see 3,500 people in attendance for the all-Munster affair of Cork and Clare.
The original limit on the number of supporters allowed into the stadiums was 500, a decision that has now been overturned following vocal criticism from people who may not be able to view the games due to them being behind a paywall on Sky Sports.
Despite the increase in attendance for each respective hurling qualifier, the Munster SFC final will remain capped at the original maximum capacity of 2,500.
The much-anticipated provincial decider between old foes Kerry and Cork will see 1,000 people seated while 1,500 fans will be in the terrace at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney.
Meanwhile, 18,000 people will be inside Croke Park on Sunday to witness the Connacht SFC final between last year’s beaten All-Ireland finalists Mayo and Pádraic Joyce’s Galway.
