I am getting tired of people always moaning.

There will be 82 000 there Sunday for the biggest sporting occassion in Ireland.

End of story.

You are not happy to pay the price for the biggest sporting event in Ireland (if not the biggest event) each year then fine. There are many other GAA people who will and see the value

While I appreciate it is the showcase of Gaelic Football season and nothing ever stays the same the GAA do need to ask themselves a question. Are they really an amateur sport? For our showcase it seems amateur game professional prices!!!
Now, before everyone jumps down my throat the GAA have made it affordable for U16's and OAP's during the league and provincial championships so I can't knock them completely. But growing up football was always a family occasion, well for us fellas anyway as no girls in house. My father would religiously bring us to every home national league game and some away. I'm sure that was probably the same for people no matter what county they were from. Also, we were lucky enough to be in a few All Ireland's and never missed a game including the final. My point being, we are a family of 3, to go to the All if tickets were secured your talking 300 euro, if you go on train I know it's 80 euro for an adult not so what U16 is. It's no longer a family occasion and it's no longer affordable.
The great thing about the GAA is the way it's handed down from generation to generation being in Croke Park watching history unfold, whether it be Dublin winning 5 in a row or Kerry coming of age. These days are no longer possible as it's out of reach for most families no matter what county your from not just Kerry. And finally I do understand you don't have to go but that tradition of bringing sons/daughters to games is broken and slowly the next generation interest wanes. I genuinely want to wish both teams the best of luck. If Dublin win 5 in a row on Sunday more luck to them and if Kerry can squeeze past them I'll have a smile and maybe the odd pint. Thanks!!!

Replying To essmac:  "Moreover, if you're from Donegal or Tyrone, where do you park now that Clonliffe is being sold? Unlike the rest of you, we don't have trains, not even bad trains! Croke Park is a great pitch but a dull stadium. No atmosphere unless it's full. It's too big and the seats are too far from the pitch. When, as a fan, you want to give advice to the ref, he can't even hear you."
Park outside city and get train in/out of city? Dpending on timetable could be much easier than going near the city

You cant go on about the sport at this level being amatuer and therefore prices being much lower because the players arent paid
There is family tickets available for as many games as its possible for them to be available. Unless you make specific sections of one of the stands a family zone like part of the Davin Stand but how necessary is it/
Finals dont because demand of tickets is high enough that they cant really offer them
Games before the all ireland final can offer family tickets because demand for tickets is low enough for GAA to be able to offer familt ticket.

In light of the discussion here, it's interesting to see that UEFA are introducing caps for the pricing of away tickets for Champions' League and Europa League matches.
