Kildare and Mayo County Boards will each receive 1500 tickets for club distribution for Saturday’s All-Ireland Qualifier game between the sides in Newbridge.

It follows the decision earlier to switch the game from Croke Park to Newbridge, after Kildare GAA said they would not play the game in Dublin, having been drawn out of the hat first on Monday morning.

In a statement this afternoon the GAA confirmed the change and said that following discussions with the Kildare County Committee and An Garda Síochána in recent days, upgraded match-day and traffic management plans involving extra stewarding and Gardaí will be put in place to cater for the large crowds expected at the venue before the game.

The GAA wishes to point out that the decision by the CCCC to fix the game for Croke Park originally was based on serious concerns around the health and safety of patrons attending the fixture. The CCCC has received assurances that these issues will be adequately addressed.

The original capacity of 8,200 remains in place.

Both county boards will receive 1500 tickets each for club distribution. The remainder will be used to meet the needs of players, season ticket holders and sponsors.

The GAA has also confirmed that tickets purchased for the double header will not be valid for the refixture and a refund process from the point of purchase has been put in place.

Supporters without tickets are urged not to come to St Conleth’s Park on Saturday.

The GAA has also confirmed that the meeting of Cavan and Tyrone will now take place at Brewster Park, Enniskillen.

Tickets for the games will be priced at 20 euro for adults and 5 euro for juveniles.
