TICKETS for the Liam Miller tribute match in Páirc Uí Chaoimh will go on sale on Monday, August 13th at 10am.
The game featuring Manchester United, Celtic and Republic of Ireland legends will take place on September 25th in memory of the late Republic of Ireland international who passed away earlier this year following a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
The game is being held to raise funds for his family and charity.
The tribute match hit the headlines in recent weeks when it emerged the GAA had turned down a request to open Páirc Uí Chaoimh which can hold 45,000, but common sense has since prevailed and the game will now take place in the stadium.
Those 7,000 fans who already purchased tickets for Turner’s Cross – where the game was going to be played – will be issued with a replacement ticket, located in the Páirc Uí Chaoimh South Stand. Instructions will be issued directly in due course by Ticketmaster.ie to customers on how to swap these tickets.
There will be a number of ticket options available. Ticket prices will range from €10 (terrace concession) to €90 (premium level). Ticket prices are as follows: terrace concession (for U18s and OAPs) €10; terrace €20; North Stand concession (for U18s and OAPs) €25; South and North Stand €40 to €50; Premium level €90.
The Cork County Board has confirmed there will be no rental cost involved with the stadium.
It has also been agreed that the most suitable way to celebrate and recognise Miller’s involvement in GAA sport at a juvenile level is to have juvenile exhibition games, in both football and hurling, at half time involving young boys and girls from his club Éire Óg.
