GAA headquarters has confirmed that there will be a substantial reduction in ticket prices for the replay of the All-Ireland hurling final in three weeks time.
The game was hardly over when leading Galway officials were in informal discussions with Croke Park officials requesting a reduction in prices for the replay.
And, on Monday afternoon, the GAA confirmed that the price of stand tickets would drop to €50 from €80, while terrace tickets will cost €25, down from €40.
The GAA will also make juvenile tickets available at €10 in the usual designated areas within the stadium and expect to sell in excess of 5,000 of these tickets.
The fact that tickets are reduced is likely to lead to a greater demand for tickets. There were almost 300 empty seats in Croke Park on Sunday.
The move by the GAA has been widely applauded, with the association clawing back some kudos after coming under fires for their ticket prices earlier in the championship.
According to the secretary of the Galway hurling board, Pat Kearney, tickets will be distributed to clubs in a similar way to they were for the original match.
