MacHale Park capacity reduced by 6,000 for Mayo’s crunch Super 8s tie against Donegal

September 19, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

THE CAPACITY AT Elverys MacHale Park has been reduced by almost 6,000 to 25,369 for health and safety reasons for Mayo’s round 3 Super 8s game against Donegal on Saturday week. 

Mayo GAA confirmed to The42 that because it’s a stand-alone fixture with general admission the capacity has been reduced from its usual figure of around 31,000.

The addition of second game as curtain-raiser would allow more supporters attend and The Connaught Telegraph reports that “every effort is being made to get a second game played at the venue that day, which would enable the capacity to be increased to over 30,000.”

A win would send the hosts into the All-Ireland semi-final, while a draw would be enough for Donegal to seal their progression into the last four. Dublin and Tyrone have already booked their places in the semi-finals heading into the final round-robin fixtures with Kerry likely to join them.

Tickets are still available for supporters to purchase at the usual retail outlets and online.
