Admission Prices
« on: February 15, 2009, 10:49:10 PM »
As I have previously commented on varying admission prices are a big bugbear of mine especially when they vary on a game by game basis in the league (no problem on them changing as you progress through the championship).  As a result I decided to start this topic to see what the years league is like for pricing.  Two weeks ago in Wexford I was charged 15 into the stand for the Wexford v Armagh game.  Last night for the Armagh v Laois game it was 12.  Whats it like in other counties and what are the concessions like.  I remember last year getting student rate into every national league game until the Armagh v Dublin where I was told in no uncertain terms that Central Council did not allow counties to offer student rates  ??? No idea why they had then for 5 or 6 games.  My favourite incident though was a McKenna cup game last year when my brother went to pay me in and said one adult and one student to which the man on the turnstyle responded that would be 5.  The guy behind me then says one adult please and the man on the turnstyle says 7 please.

Also where does the additional money go?

If Armagh had a covered seated stand like Wexford you'd have been charged 15 into it too. Pretty sure its 15 into covered stand and 12 into terrace in all cases.

True in fairness especially after a defeat.
If Armagh had a covered seated stand like Wexford you'd have been charged 15 into it too. Pretty sure its 15 into covered stand and 12 into terrace in all cases.

Is that set by central council or an individual county basis?  It was 12 into the uncovered stand last night just for clarification
