PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "Croke Park is braced for its biggest GAA crowd since before Covid with up to 75,000 expected to attend Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final double-header at HQ. The full house sign may not quite be up for the meeting of Armagh and Galway (1.45pm), followed by the clash of Kerry and Mayo (4pm), but Croke Park is expected to be rocking with few spaces among the 82,300-capacity stadium.With attendance capped at 50% for last year’s All-Ireland finals and no spectators allowed for the 2020 deciders, Sunday will mark the biggest crowd at Croke Park for GAA action since the 2019 All-Ireland SFC final replay.Spectators are talking with their feet as the Championship nears its crescendo and after record online sales when tickets were released last Tuesday, around 125,000 people are expected to visit Croke Park between Saturday and Sunday — generating a €3m (£2.5m) bonanza.“It’s gone like a rocket, they’re run­ning out of seats for Sunday,” Alan Milton, the GAA’s Director of Com­munications, said.

.“The quarter-final pairings involv­ing Dublin would normally be the stronger one because of their pop­ulation base and they’re in the capi­tal but it’s nearly a role reversal. We could have 125,000 people in Croke Park this weekend which is not an insignificant figure in global sport, never mind Irish sport.”Anything up to 55,000 people are expected to attend Saturday’s All-Ire­land SFC quarter-final double-header between surprise packets Clare and Derry, as well as the meeting of Dub­lin and Cork, with Milton thankful that normality is finally resuming.“It’s hugely encouraging that people are making a choice to come to our games,” he added. “It’s just great.”" , "isAccessibleForFree": "False", "hasPart": { "@type": "WebPageElement", "isAccessibleForFree": "False","cssSelector": "#flip-pay"} }
