Dublin County Board announce ticket pricing and entertainment initiative to promote the 2011 Allianz Leagues home games

The Dublin County Board today announced details of an exciting and ground-breaking promotional campaign around the Dublin football and hurling Allianz Leagues home games which is being billed as the “Dublin Spring Series”. This will consist of eight games; four football, two hurling, one camogie and another to be confirmed along with four music acts all of which can be attended for just €45 (an adult stand ticket for all four games) or just €55 for one adult and one child for all four events.

The Series begins on Saturday, February 19 with a double-header under lights when Dublin’s footballers and hurlers will take on All-Ireland champions in both codes, Cork and Tipperary. Pop sensations and Dublin fans, Jedward, will add to this superb event by providing entertainment between the games.

All Dublin football home Allianz League matches including Kerry (February 26), Mayo (March 20) and All-Ireland finalists Down (April 2) will be a part of this series as well as the hurlers home match against Kilkenny on April 2.

It is proposed that all games will be played under lights in Croke Park and adding to these great nights will be a selection of entertainment from some of Dublin’s most successful acts. This kicks off with Lucan’s Jedward on February 19, Damien Dempsey from Donaghmede takes to the stage on February 26 with two more big music acts to be announced next week.

Value is at the core of these events with an adult stand ticket, to cover all four nights, costing just €45 (if purchased as a bundle of four) and a family ticket consisting of one adult and one child to cover each event costs just €55. Tickets to individual games are priced at €13 for adults for stand tickets and only €5 for children. These can be purchased from Eoin Darcy (086 8286543) or Colm Brennan (086 8671546)

Chairman of Dublin County Board, Andy Kettle said; “We’re looking forward to a superb atmosphere in Croke Park throughout the Allianz Leagues and making Dublin’s home games great events. We would encourage as many people as possible to get out and buy the bundle tickets and take advantage of what promises to be a fantastic mix of football and hurling talent coupled with some of Dublin’s most entertaining music acts.”

“This promotional activity is a great example of how County Boards, sponsors and the GAA can be proactive in promoting our national games,” he continued.

Speaking at the announcement, John Costello chief executive of the Dublin County Board said; “We wanted to add something extra to this year’s Allianz Leagues home games and really create a great carnival event that will appeal to families as well as those Dublin fans who regularly attend games. We would like to thank the GAA, Croke Park, Allianz and Vodafone for helping us make this happen.”

“We understand that money is tight at the moment so we have priced tickets as competitively as we possibly can so everyone has the opportunity to come along and enjoy themselves, watch our great national games and soak up the atmospheres,” he concluded.
