Corporate tickets.

not corporate bass premium...level below the boxes..1010 for an upper hogan ticket is a bit ridiculous as well

and despite this madness you will still pick up tickets at face value Sunday morning

No way not for this one Moneypenny. Unless you actually no someone with a spare. Gant is making a mint of this, all these clubs down the country that have no interest with the game officials are cleaning up.

I don't mean they are corporate level.

I mean this is satisfying corporate demand.

As always this sector has to be filled by Friday evening. The price the tickets can command will fall after this.

There will still be a few tickets around James Gills, Ryans Hogan Stand and in the Gresham on Sunday. There always is and this will be no exception.

Your spot on bassiano
What usually happens in these situations is people who are desperate for a ticket have their fingers in several pots. Suddenly they have two or three all come through, usually on the Friday night/ Saturday morning. These people are delighted to get one ticket for themselves and most  are glad to help out someone else for no profit.

Also you must remember that with any event with 82000 people planning to attend a certain number wont be able to make it on the day due to personal circumstances, e.g illness,accidents, deaths, births or other crisis in their lives.

Same in Jurys on the morning moneypenny.

People arrange to meet and collect tickets. As you say a few sources come through even at the last moment resulting in a few going spare. Quite rightly they will share them out among their own supporters and rarely will you see someone ask for more than face value. It is one of the great things about All Ireland day.

I agree with you on this Kavvie i think this is a different type of demand the herring eaters will bring.

Donegal got 14,000 tickets I believe .  Normally there is a second "allowance" after the initial allocation , know we here got an extra 4000 tickets in the nineties .  But apparently no extra this year , so tickets are like hens teeth in and around Donegal .

Time was when 7k was loose change in and around the afore mentioned Killybegs , had reputedly the highest percentage of millionaires per head of the population anywhere in the world at one heady time .  Hardly a boat running out of there now , mores the pity .

Still plenty of boats there Kelly plenty. One of my best friends is on one, does very well for himself. Fish prices have gone through up quite a fair bit recently.

14.5k tickets i believe they got, it's very small when you think about it. I believe small clubs around the country should not get them.

i actually have two tickets for the final.......and im not certain that i can make it.......its more than likely that i wont get there......would be willing to give them to somebody at face value.....if i cant make it that is......they are sitting down seats but not in either of the main stands.......anybody who is interested can pm me after 4 o clock.......if they are interested.....i will know by then if i can go or not.......

Fair dues Bobby.
Report Bassanio September 21, 2012 11:33 AM BST
The distribution of tickets for the final is ridiculous but is unlikely to change in the near future.

There will still be over 30,000 Donegal supporters there and the same from Mayo but it can take a good search for them.

Kerry supporters on the other hand know exactly where to for their tickets each year but they have a little more experience and have built up a few contacts over the years.

Only definitive reports I get from Killybegs area , Rocketfingers , is from a friend whose daughter married one of the local fishermen with a share in a boat .  Unemployed now .

Time was when you drove through Killybegs ( even Daniel not always known to stop there ) the harbour was full of boats .  Only one there last couple of times I drove through , on the way to the cliffs which astonish visitors who have been "sold" the Cliffs of Moher .
