Ulster GAA Announce Reduced Admission Prices for 2012 Championships
Following the trend of increased attendances at all Ulster Competitions this year Ulster GAA have announced a new admission price structure for the 2012 Championship. Attendances increased significantly on the previous year at the Ulster Club Championship, Power NI McKenna Cup and the Under 21 Championship after the Ulster Council introduced a range of admission packages following a consultation exercise with Clubs and Counties.
Announcing the new pricing structure Ulster GAA President Aogan O’Fearghail said “We have been listening to our members and getting their feedback on the price structure that we have put in place for the 2012 Championship. Following the success of the Power NI McKenna Cup season ticket, coupled with the reduction in admission in both the Ulster Club Championship and Ulster U21 Championship we are again happy announce a reduction in the admission to our games for the 2012 Championship to support families and genuine GAA supporters who want to support their County over the summer. That is why we are continuing our policy of granting free admission to all children under the age of 16 to non ticketed games and a concessionary rate for students and senior citizens. We have also put in place family packages for any games that will be ticketed and these tickets will be available from County Committee Offices and www.tickets.ie. In most cases those attending an Ulster Championship game are located in the terraces meaning a family of 5 (Two adults and 3 children) can now attend an Ulster Championship match for £24 or €30.

The Ulster President underlined Ulster GAA’s commitment to supporting the development of the GAA in Ulster through its programmes:“Its important to remind everyone that 85% of the income that is generated from the Ulster Senior Championships is reinvested into Clubs and Counties through infrastructure grants, Coaching and Games programmes and County and Club Development support. We would also ask our members to follow our web-site www.ulster.gaa.ie and social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter to get more information on ticket officers and competitions over the summer.
The admission prices into what is Ulster leading sporting event are both fair and very good value and we look forward to a colourful and entertaining summer of Gaelic Games and I would remind our members that when it comes to the Ulster Championship, nothing beats being there“.
