THERE is good news for some 3,622 Mayo supporters today with confirmation that Croke Park will be reinstating the GAA Season Ticket scheme for 2022.
Suspended in August 2020 due to Covid restrictions on the amount of spectators allowed attend inter-county games, the scheme will be resurrected in the coming weeks.
Mayo GAA Secretary, Dermot Butler said he’s delighted to see the season ticket scheme coming back and added it was welcome news for Mayo fans.
“Here in Mayo we have fantastic supporters and they travel the length of breadth of the country to watch the team play, so I’m delighted the scheme will be there for them if they want to avail of it.”
Mayo had 3622 season ticket holders before the scheme was suspended 14 months ago and they will be given first refusal when it’s resurrected in the coming weeks.
“It’s only fair that those who had supported the scheme over the years are given an option to rejoin, but if they don’t take up that option there will be an opportunity for others to join the scheme,” Butler explained.
The Mayo News understands that the new scheme will be priced at €250 for a Club Plus ticket which previously retailed at €200, and €150 for the regular season ticket up from the previous price of €120.
The regular ticket entitles holders to admission to all of their county's league games in their chosen code as well as their opening championship fixture, while the Club Plus ticket also incorporates a number of club matches.
