Fans allowed into GAA matches from Monday

The GAA has confirmed that one-hundred supporters will be able to attend matches in the Republic from next Monday (June 7th).

Crowds of 200 will be allowed into grounds with capacities above 5000.

The Association is also hopeful that it can increase the amount of spectators allowed into a match to 500 next month.

Dressing rooms will remain closed for club fixtures while the GAA has advised that club-run gyms should remain shut in a bid to minimise the risk of a coronavirus outbreak.

The new changes mean that 200 supporters will be allowed to attend Donegal’s Allianz Football League Division 1 game against Dublin at Kingspan Breffni on Saturday week, and Sligo’s Division 4 shield final against Wexford in Portlaoise the following afternoon.

For club games in Sligo this coming Bank Holiday Monday, 100 spectators will be allowed attend the U14 club final matches in Scarden.

Markievicz Park will be allowed accommodate 200 fans for the 2020 Junior ‘B’ football championship final replay betweeen Coolaney/Mullinabreena and St Farnans (throw-in: 12pm).
