The GAA has confirmed that tickets for Mayo and Kerry's eagerly anticipated All-Ireland semi-final replay on Saturday will be sold at a reduced price.

Stand tickets for the encounter have been cut from €45 to €35 and Dineen/Hill 16 tickets have gone from €30 to €25.

The news will be a relief to Mayo fans who will be supporting their side in the Championship for the NINTH time this summer.

A massive crowd of 66,195 went through the turnstiles at GAA headquarters yesterday and a similar number will result in a massive financial windfall for the association, believed to be worth around €1.5m.

Tickets are available at usual outlets and online at tickets.ie and gaa.ie/tickets.
