The GAA have reduced the ticket prices for the All Ireland final replay, but many fans feel they could have gone further.

Many fans annoyed by the All-Ireland replay ticket prices

Following yesterday's thrilling draw between Dublin and Mayo, Croke Park has signalled that it will reduce the prices for the replay on October 1.

It is the first All-Ireland SFC final replay since 2000, when it took two games for Kerry to beat Galway and claim their 32nd All-Ireland football title.

Hogan and Cusack Stand tickets have been reduced to from €80 to €60, and Hill 16 tickets will drop from €40 to €30.

In addition, there will be a limited number of €10 tickets available for Under 16s from the competing counties only.

However, as fans have been quick to point out, there were bigger reductions for the hurling replays in recent years, with the stand tickets down to €50 rather than €60.

Despite the reductions, the GAA are likely to pocket up to €3m in gate receipts from the showdown.

There will be no tickets on general sale. Tickets will be distributed to clubs via county committees and to 6,700 GAA Season Ticket holders from competing counties.
