The GAA is set to relaunch its season ticket for 2022 with a 25% increase in the price also on the cards for supporters.
The season ticket process was temporarily suspended last year as a result of the restrictions in place around crowd numbers allowed to attend matches. However, it will return in 2022 as a normal fixture scheduling for the various competitions will return.
While the 2021 ticket cost €120, it will now rise to €150 as was discussed at last weekend’s Central Council meeting. The club-plus ticket which offers entry into all club games within a county, all intercounty league games and the first championship fixture of the season, has also increased from €200 to €250.
Footballing powerhouses Dublin and Mayo are two of the counties that have a strong season-ticket holding base with both counties selling the maximum number of season-tickets in recent years of 3,500.
The season ticket has several additional benefits to hardcore GAA supporters across Ireland.
It offers entry into the All-Ireland club finals as well as a €5 discount on tickets to intercounty championship games where the supporter’s county is playing.
Season ticket holders are also guaranteed to have the opportunity to purchase a ticket for the All-Ireland final if their county side is involved.
Despite the increase in season tickets, there will be no such rise in general admission tickets for intercounty games.
