Tickets for the Connacht GAA Senior Football Championship quarter-final between Mayo and New York sold out a week before throw-in at Gaelic Park in The Bronx, New York on Sunday, April 7.

New York GAA announced on Instagram on Sunday, March 31 that all tickets for the Connacht GAA championship quarter-final clash "have been sold out due to high demand."

The organization added: "Regrettably, no further tickets are available at this time.”

A spokesperson for New York GAA confirmed with IrishCentral on Monday that all tickets are now sold out and there will be no tickets available at the gate.

The Connacht GAA Senior Football Championship quarter-final at Gaelic Park is a hot ticket every year, but it seems that this year, the dash to get tickets was compounded by poor communication from organizers.

Connacht GAA and Mayo GAA announced on social media on March 19 that tickets would be available on Ticketmaster on Friday, March 22, though those quickly sold out.

On Saturday, March 23, New York GAA said in posts on Instagram and Facebook: "Due to an issue with Ticketmaster and Croke Park there is a delay on our printed tickets.

"We hope to have sorted and available for purchase tomorrow.

"Locations TBA.

"Apologizes for any inconvenience."

Several people commented on the posts asking where the locations were, but New York GAA did not respond in the comments.

After IrishCentral inquired about the locations of the ticket sales, New York GAA said on March 25 that the 2000 tickets they had to sell locally had sold out on March 24 and that "only tickets available will be on the gate."

However, the tickets that were set to be available at the gate are now gone.

New York GAA faced some criticism on Instagram on Sunday and Monday for its vague directions on how to get tickets.

“How can tickets be sold out when you didn’t tell anyone where they could buy them,” one person wrote.

Another commented: “Ya never answered questions where to find them. Ticketmaster was a disasters. This is truly poor presentation and planning when you have people planning to fly from all over to try to get to game.”

Similarly, one person commented on Mayo GAA's post on Sunday: "Don't understand what is happening with these tickets. NYGAA [is] saying sold out but they never disclosed where or how to buy them when ticketmaster wasn't working. Very frustrating."

While tickets for spectators are no longer available, New York GAA did post a call-out for volunteers for the match, with one of the "perks" being free admission to the game.

The Connacht GAA Senior Football Championship quarter-final between Mayo and New York is set to be carried live on GAAGO on Sunday, April 7.
