Anger over tickets for Semple clash

Stand tickets for the double header at the Thurles grounds are sold out…leaving many fans with no option but to go into the terrace if they want to attend the game. 

Tipperary will face Dublin in the quarter final, while Limerick and Wexford face off in the other tie. 

Long time Tipperary supporter Paddy from Thurles who can't get a stand ticket for this Sunday's quarter final clash at Semple Stadium…

Paddy says that he stood in the Terrace for the Tipp game against Offaly; however he says he is unable to stand for that length of time….and feels that priority for these games should be given to those who've attended matches all season

Margo is also an avid Tipperary supporter…she and her family have attended all the games so far this year, she says that terrace tickets are no good to her as her children wouldn't be able to view the match from there.

Semple Stadium has capacity for 25 thousand between the two terraces….2 thousand tickets were allocated to each of the counties taking part in Sunday's games….5 in total. 

After that there are over 3 thousand tickets allocated to season pass holders…while another 2 thousand are reserved for players tickets, VIPs and sponsors along with some for neutral counties. 

The remaining 10 thousand stand tickets went on public sale, with half of them sold by last Friday…however, following Wexford's win over Waterford…there was a rush last weekend on outlets for the remaining seats…

By last Monday morning, the stands were sold out…leaving the Terrace as the only option for match-goers. 

The Secretary of the Tipperary County Board Tim Floyd says that the demand for the games is unprecedented and Croke Park didn't see it coming

The game between Tipperary and Dublin throws in at Semple Stadium on Sunday at 4pm…Tipp FM will have full live coverage with our build up beginning at 3 o'clock
