Donegal and Armagh will meet in the league this weekend - and 500 fans will be there to see it

Fifty match tickets are to be made available to the Donegal County Board for this Saturday evening’s league meeting with Armagh.

However, because cross-border travel for non-essential reasons is discouraged, the tickets won’t be made available to supporters.

Instead, Donegal GAA have been advised that the tickets should be given to non-playing players and county officials.

In all, 500 spectators will be allowed to attend Saturday night’s Allianz National League game at the Athletic Grounds and other games in the Six Counties this weekend.

Of the 500 available for this Saturday’s encounter between Armagh and Donegal, 50 complimentary tickets each will be made available to the Armagh and Donegal County Boards and CLG Ard Mhacha will get a further 400 to sell locally. 

In a statement issued by the GAA today, the organisation confirmed that 500 spectators will be allowed attend Allianz League matches in the Six Counties this weekend.

The following breakdown of how tickets should be distributed was outlined:

· 50 complimentary tickets to travelling county from outside the north (non-playing players and county officials, no sale for spectators.

· 50 complimentary tickets to home county (non-playing players and county officials).

· 400 tickets to each host county – to sell locally only.

Tickets will be sold via county boards locally with the following pricing:

£15 Division 1 and 2 Football & Division 1 Hurling and £10 Division 3 and 4 Football and Division 2 and 3 Hurling. There will be no concession tickets due to limited numbers. 

These arrangements will be reviewed at the conclusion of the Allianz Leagues in line with public health advice at that time.
