More than 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the AIG Fenway Hurling Classic in Boston later this year, just 24 hours after going on sale.

The clash sees Galway take on Dublin in the famous baseball venue on Sunday, November 22, with the game forming part of an Irish Festival at Fenway that weekend.

And organisers are planning to open up further seating to cater for the demand after a greater than anticipated take up when tickets went on sale on Thursday evening. Some estimations now suggest the final attendance could go close to the 38,000 capacity of the venue.

The game will be played in the Super 11s format which allows hurling to be played at stadia that can’t facilitate a full length pitch. It will be the first time hurling has been played at Fenway Park since 1954.

Tickets are being sold through the Boston Red Sox website at RedSox.com/IrishFestival.
