Munster GAA has flagged that next week's hurling final between Limerick and Clare in Semple Stadium will be a 46,000 sell-out.

It follows the swift sale this morning of 11,000 terrace tickets which were snapped up within 11 minutes of going on sale on Ticketmaster and at participating Supervalu and Centra outlets at 10am.

Munster has sent out an update to state that all remaining tickets are with season-ticket holders and the Limerick and Clare county boards. They do not expect there will be any returns.

The pairing is an obvious draw, given the rivalry of Limerick and Clare traditionally and Limerick's status as Munster and All-Ireland champions. But the resurgence of Clare under Brian Lohan has spiked interest in the county as they topped the round robin group on score difference, having drawn with Limerick in Ennis.

Munster crowds have been healthy with around 216,000 attending the 10 round robin games, a drop of 8.5pc on 2019 but a 6.5pc lift by comparison to the same venue rota in 2018.
