    It was mid December around the 14th or so last year so probably the same this year.

    Starting to get a bit worried about the season ticket arrival.

    To pay for something at the end of October and yet to have received it on December 19th is taking the p1ss TBH

    Depends on what county you are from.

    With the semis gone in the league, it's essentially a loyalty scheme to get tickets for the bigger games for the top teams.

    It's not good value for about 25 counties I'd say.

    Not the bigger games. Just the one game. The All Ireland Final. There is absolutely no other benefit to it any more. I was a Cork football season ticket holder for six years .I missed 3 matches in 2010, none in 2011, 1 in 2012, none in 2013, 1 in 2014, 3 in 2015. 2016 I missed a lot more and ultimately gave up on the season ticket after that. If somehow Cork did make an All Ireland final, I know i'd be able to get one. I like hurling but only in an armchair sense. If you gave me two All-Ireland final tickets if cork got there, I'd give them away, so for me it really isn't worth it any more.

    It's not just county. Can save you a bomb if you get a club plus ticket and you don't need to attend a single game to be guaranteed an intercounty AI final ticket. I reckon last year I easily saved over 100 euro just off not having to pay into club matches.

    That's fair enough. I don't go to enough club matches to justify that. Am I right in thinking Cork aren't involved in the club plus?

    Is that all Club matches. I use my mates Parnell pass for Dublin champo games. Could it be used for Leinster Final or All Ireland Semi final club.

    Think Parnell is seperate to the general intercounty season tickets so I can't speak to the Dublin one. I'm led to believe you might have to pay for provincial final/all ireland semi but you do still get the Paddy's Day final free under the club+ season ticket.

    You get Paddys day on the regular season ticket too.

    It's my first year buying one. I said I'd try it for a year anyway. The problem is, I support both codes.

    Me too. Have Dublin football ST don’t have hurlers.
    Sometimes there’s a double header so that’s free in. When hurlers play in Croke Park and not double header I use my mates Wexford hurling ST.
    Sometimes they play on same day but different venue, I go the football.
    And pay in to the rest. A ST would be a waste of money for me.

    But you won't give up the Dublin Football ST. That's a good one to have.
