Mayo GAA today released important information for Cáirde Mhaigheo ticket holders relating to ticketing for this year’s club Championship fixtures. You’ll find this information here.
As you all know by now, the decision to pause the Phase 4 reopening of the country has had the knock-on effect of restricting attendances at GAA matches to just 200 people. With players, backroom teams and assorted officials accounting for close to half this number, this obviously means that tickets for punters at upcoming club Championship fixtures will, of necessity, be an extremely scarce commodity.
In normal times, one of the perks of Cáirde Mhaigheo membership – which I’ve availed of often myself – is free entry into all club Championship matches within the county. These, though, are far from normal times so that arrangement can’t apply this year.
Instead, Cáirde members will be restricted to applying for matches that only involve the club associated with that membership. You may not recall that you did this but if you are a Cáirde member then you had to nominate an associated Mayo club when you took out your membership. It’s matches involving this club – and no other – for which you’ll be entitled to seek tickets, initially for Rounds 1 and 2.
In light of the severe curtailment on overall numbers at matches, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a ticket for any games but if you’re interested in looking for tickets for Round 1 and 2 then here’s what you need to do.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 6pm this Thursday, 23rd July. In this email you’ll need to provide the following details:
- Your name
- Your six-digit Cáirde Mhaigheo membership number (this is located on the front of your membership card)
- The fixture or fixtures you wish to attend
In the notice from Mayo GAA linked above you’ll find more details on how this process will work. The important bit that’s worth repeating is that if you’re planning to go to any of the Round 1 or 2 matches then you need to act fast, as outlined above.
Best of luck to everyone who plans to partake in this particular ticket hunt.
