Ennis encourages Ulster Council to reduce ticket prices for Championship matches
Sinn Féin spokesperson for Sports, Arts and Culture Sinead Ennis MLA has encouraged the Ulster Council to reduce ticket prices for Ulster Championship matches.
The South Down MLA was speaking after the Ulster GAA council’s secretary Brian McEvoy said there will be no review of ticket prices for the remainder of this year’s Ulster Senior Football Championship.
Sinéad Ennis said:
“The increase in ticket prices has been a major factor in the reduced number of spectators at Ulster Championship games.
“Ulster Championship day was always an enjoyable family day out, but now families are being priced out of this.
“These ticket prices coupled with the reduction of live Ulster Championship games this year is ensuring fewer and fewer people are able watch their county play.
“I would urge the Ulster Council to rethink their plan and reduce their ticket prices.
“The GAA is an organisation that is here for all. With these ticket prices, it is driving away the ordinary working person.”
