The scramble for ticket's for the biggest game in the GAA calendar is well and truly on, and one lucky ticketless Dub could end up watching events unfold in Croke Park.

The clash of rivals Kerry and Dublin has certainly captured the imagination, with supporters of both sides willing to pay above and beyond face value prices in order to get a seat for the Croke park showdown.

As is the case every year, some loyal followers will miss out, but one dedicated Dubs supporter has passed up the opportunity of a ticket so that another diehard doesn't miss out on the huge sporting occasion.

Danny the Poet's recent video regarding the final, with his humourous take on bandwagon supporters looking to join the ticket scramble, quickly went viral.

Mr. Price Branded Bargains then contacted Danny to offer the fan a ticket for Sunday, but he declined so that another supporter could see the mouth-watering encounter between the Munster and Leinster champions.

The discounted variety retailer is now running a competition to find Dublin's biggest fan, with Danny the Poet the deciding judge.

With match tickets fetching in excess of €2,200 on eBay, it is a far more cost effective way to follow the Boys in Blue as they bid to dethrone the reigning All-Ireland champions.

Apply to truefan@mrprice.ie and say why you are a true Dub fan to be in with a chance of winning.
