Dublin and Mayo will have to reschedule any holiday plans as the two counties must prepare for the trip back to Croke Park in October, writes Stephen Barry.
The first football final to go to a replay since Kerry and Galway in 2000 will be replayed on Saturday week, October 1, with a 5pm throw-in time.
Croke Park stadium director Peter McKenna told the Irish Examiner on Saturday that the GAA “could have sold 120,000 tickets for the final, without doubt”.
Demand will certainly remain high if the GAA continue their recent precedent from the three replayed hurling finals this decade and reduce ticket prices for the second day out.
On those occasions stand tickets were lowered from €80 to €50 and terrace tickets brought down from €40 to €25.
Juvenile tickets were also made available for €10.
Former Liverpool and Germany footballer turned RTÉ pundit Didi Hamann was the first to make his case for a ticket.
What a game that was, great effort by both teams. Let's try to get a ticket sorted for the replay #DUBvMAYO— Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) September 18, 2016
He wasn’t the only overseas sport star watching in, although Lee Westwood will be otherwise engaged with Ryder Cup duty come October 1.
They've got to do it all again!!!? Bloody hell! That was exciting stuff. #DUBvMAYO— Lee Westwood (@WestwoodLee) September 18, 2016
One inter-county footballer was quick to deter potential requests for tickets.
No! I don't have any tickets for the replay 👍🏼😳— Tom Flynn (@tom_flynn14) September 18, 2016
Others were thinking of the plight of a certain Senator when Conor Lane blew for full-time.
It's tough,mentally & physically, to pick yourself up after a draw but we have faith that Michelle Mulherin will get tickets again #DUBvMAYO— Mallow News (@MallowNews) September 18, 2016
Michelle Mulherin already giving off that she hasn't sorted her tickets for the replay. #DUBvMAYO— S H A N E (@ItsGillen) September 18, 2016
For some fans, thoughts turned to Rio to solve their ticketing plight.
We just can’t wait for it all to start again!
