Calls for GAA to stop using Ticketmaster

It’s after a number of tickets for the Dublin/Tyrone All Ireland semi-final appeared online at multiples of their original cost.

Shortly after the tickets went on sale they were soon appearing on re-selling websites like Seatwave at hugely inflated prices.

The GAA responded quickly – and cancelled them.

Seatwave isn’t an official retailer for the GAA – however its sister company Ticketmaster is allocated tickets.

For this reason – one Dublin fan club – wants the GAA to stop using Ticketmaster.

Richie Larkin of the “All Dublin GAA Fans” Facebook page believes tickets should only be available through clubs, for season holders or at the ticket office near Croke Park.
