Season Tickets/Passes Ticket claiming Procedure for upcoming senior games
In order to give an understanding of the challenges we face trying to cater for everyone, the county has over 1,400 passes between Croke Park Club Plus, Co Board Season Tickets (€120) and Co Board Concessionary Passes (€25). In order to track attendance and traceability, all these pass holders must have a ticket from our new ticket system to attend all club fixtures this year and present this ticket on entry for scanning with their appropriate pass/season ticket.
As a result you must first register your details on the new ticketing system in order to access the code for their permit to attend their chosen game(s). Tipperary GAA will release the registration details early next week W/C July 13th.
Our season ticket holders/pass holders will all get priority for a limited time period each week (TBA W/C July 13th) to obtain a ticket for their selected game before tickets are placed on public sale but we cannot guarantee availability for the popular games as they will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
When you are registered there will be a section on the Tipperary website for pass holders: (TBA W/C July 13th) where users will log in based on their registration details provided and then claim one ticket. Season ticket holders and pass members are reminded that you will only be able to claim one ticket for one game each day.
You will need to provide an email address, phone number and name for your ticket for contact tracing purposes. Tickets will only scan once a day at the game that ticket is valid for. Tickets scanned twice will appear on the scanner and you will NOT be permitted entry. Please produce your ticket on your phone or print out and pass at the game.
