2017 Mayo GAA Season Ticket Renewals

The 2017 Mayo GAA season ticket renewals are now open. The Cairde Maigheo and Croke Park Mayo GAA season tickets are open to renewals only, as both were sold out last year. The Croke Park season ticket for Mayo has been sold out since 2013, with the Cairde Maigheo ticket selling out completely last year. There is currently a waiting list for both, and any Mayo season tickets not renewed for 2017 will be offered to people on the waiting list. (We have been informed today by someone that contacted Croke Park to be added to the waiting list that it is now full for 2017. We’ll post more info on this as we receive it).

Cairde Mhaigheo 2017 Season Ticket Update 12/10/2016:

The cost for Cairde Mhaigheo members is €200. Ticket renewals are open until November 30th meaning no new applications will be accepted until after this date. Please do not contact the office in MacHale Park looking to become a new Cairde Mhaigheo member as currently these tickets are not available. A review will take place after December 1st and if tickets become available they will then be put on sale. Should tickets become available after December 1st Mayo GAA will notify all supporters via their website & social media.

Quick update on Croke Park season ticket scanning and attendance problems

Quick update on Croke Park season ticket scanning and attendance problems

A quick update on Croke Park season ticket scanning and attendance problems

Here’s a quick update on Croke Park season ticket scanning and attendance problems. Due to an unprecedented amount of emails and messages over the course of the past 36 hours or so, we wanted to post a quick update on our quest to work with the GAA season ticket office to resolve the problems some of you have been having with your season ticket attendance records. (This is not our first time in this situation – the problem hasn’t gone away you know!)

A short synopsis: Basically lots of you contacted us after the Dublin game either by email, Facebook or Twitter to say that you or a family member had attended the game and scanned your season ticket at the gates, only for your attendance not to register on your record. Upon notifying the season ticket office, most of you were told that as no problems had been reported from the venue on the day, your attendance records would not be manually updated. As the numbers contacting us rose, we started to make a list, and after a few days decided to contact the Croke Park office directly with the names and season ticket numbers of those who were happy to provide them – 21 in total at the time (there have been many more since) – to see if we could intervene on your behalf and show that despite their claims that no issues had been reported from the venue, there clearly was a problem.

We had previously experienced problems (see here for details) and so could understand the position of the office and their reluctance to manually update records after games. However we felt that those who had contacted us were genuine, had attended the game and scanned their tickets in good faith, and ultimately, deserved to be treated fairly in return for their investment in the season ticket (at a cost of €99 per adult and €20 per juvenile).

What followed was a very frustrating exchange of emails, where the season ticket office refused to engaged and repeatedly told us they could not discuss individual accounts with us (at no stage did we ask them to). Ultimately, we got nowhere and the tone of the replies from the season ticket office became more and more irate. They were adamant that each complaint was assessed on a case-by-case basis, and so we had little choice but to advise the people on our list to keep following up with them individually.

On Wednesday on MidWest Radio Paul Claffey read out a letter on his show from a lady who had experienced the same problem, and we followed up with an email to the station last night. Tommy Marren yesterday devoted a substantial portion of his show to the problem – you can listen back on the link below. We have since been contacted by a number of other supporters with the same problem. MidWest Radio will be following this up again next week and are looking for more supporters to speak on air – please contact us with your details if you are willing to go on air and we will put you in touch.

We unfortunately feel we’ve reached the end of the road with the season ticket office – they have made it clear that they will not engage with us further. We are however currently seeking legal advice on the matter and will, with permission, keep a record of the many people who have contacted us with problems and produce it should it be needed at a later stage.  If you have been affected by this problem, we would urge you to continue following up with the season ticket office directly. Other avenues of complaint include the following:

There are a couple of things we wish to point out:

  • Firstly, we feel strongly that the volunteers and stewards at the turnstiles in Elverys MacHale Park do everything in their power to ensure that things run smoothly on match days. This is not the fault or responsibility of any of the people who give their time so generously. Nor is this issue within the control of Mayo GAA, as they are not responsible for attendance records.
  • Secondly, the season ticket office has in the past explained that fraudulent scanning of tickets is a problem. The bottom line is this: if you turn up on match days with a handful of tickets in your back pocket to give to strangers to get them scanned, you are part of the problem and your behaviour is affecting genuine supporters. Yes, you can hand over your ticket to a friend if you can’t make a game, but the season ticket scheme is a loyalty scheme, designed to reward supporters who genuinely attend games with access to an All-Ireland ticket, should their county reach the final. Your abuse of the system just means that other people have to spend their free time arguing with the season ticket office when they could be doing far more fun things like say, tweezing out their toenails or sticking pins in their eyes. Just saying.
  • Thirdly, we hear that those fancy Cairde Mhaigheo tickets do not depend on an attendance record to access an All-Ireland ticket should we in Mayo be lucky enough to need one. Yes, they are more expensive, but they also entitle you to entry to club championship games and some sexy Mayo GAA clobber. So y’know, something to think about for next year!

We’ll be back with an update in due course.

Update 19th April 2016

Rob from Mayo Club 51 was interviewed on the Tommy Marren show on Mid west radio with an update on the issues regarding the problems with scanning season tickets. Also in the interview, Tommy reads out a statement from Alan Milton from Croke Park.

In other news – six weeks to London – the countdown is on! Keep an eye on London GAA’s Facebook page for updates on tickets, which we believe are scarcer than feathers on a fish ….

Mayo GAA PRO Paul Cunnane was interviewed on the Tommy Marren show on Tuesday 19th April regarding the situation with the London v Mayo ticket scarcity for Mayo fans.

2016 Mayo GAA Season Ticket Renewals Now Open

2016 Mayo GAA season ticketThe 2016 Mayo GAA season ticket is now open for renewal. Unfortunately there is no “Early Bird” renewal price of €75 & €85 as there was in 2013 and 2014. The 2016 Mayo GAA season ticket for an adult increases from €85 to €99. Juvenile tickets have also doubled in price from €10 to €20 this year. However the GAA seems to think that the 2016 Season Ticket is “Great Value” this year for loyal GAA supporters! (Hill 16 Dublin GAA season tickets however remain the same price this year at €165)

If there is anyone thinking of not renewing your season tickets for 2016, we’d recommend that you do, as there will not be any more Mayo GAA season tickets on sale in the future. You can renew them for someone that is looking to get a season ticket, you can add their payment card details instead of your own on the season ticket account. Any season tickets not being renewed are not being released for sale again.  Edit: The GAA season ticket office have confirmed today that “If any Mayo GAA  season tickets are not renewed before the 30th of November, they will be released for sale to the Mayo season ticket waiting list”.

Delivery arrangements for season tickets have also been confirmed today (15th OCT). “Delivery arrangements are as follows: All purchases prior to midnight on Friday 25th November 2015 will be posted on Friday 4th December 2015. Purchases after Friday 25th November will be produced and dispatched in January 2016.”

Season Tickets – Free Entry To Club Finals

Season Tickets

As you probably already know, being a season ticket holder has many advantages. It allows you free entry into any league match (code-specific). Season tickets also allow you free entry into the All-Ireland Club Finals between Corofin from Co. Galway and Slaughtneil from Co Derry on St. Patrick’s Day, (throw in is now 4pm). Corofin are managed by Mayo & Crossmolina’s own Stephen Rochford. We know that any Mayo vs Galway tie is sometimes the be all and end all between rivals, but on this occasion we hope all Mayo folk will give our Galway neighbours, and Connacht representatives, their support on St Patrick’s Day.

Mayo Club 51 are putting the call out to all season ticket holders if you are not using your tickets for the final, to help out Corofin supporters. First of all you will need to log-in to your season ticket account and go to “Special Purchases” to request your (free) tickets. You can e-mail tickets directly to the Corofin P.R.O. John Fahey,  pro.corofin.galway [at] gaa.ie.

You can order tickets up to the amount on your account. If you have 2 Adult and 3 Juvenile, then you can order 5 tickets. You can also change your Juvenile season tickets  to Adult tickets (for special purchases only). Sections available are Cusack Stand Lower Tier – section 302 ( 302 only was available when I purchased my free tickets).

Once you save and download your  free tickets for the Club Finals on St Patrick’s Day in Croke Park, its then only a matter of attaching them in an e-mail to send to someone. All they need to do then is just print them out. If you can’t attend the match then do make use of your free season tickets and send them on to someone that will make use of them!

New Season Ticket Self Scanning

New Season Ticket Self Scanning

New season ticket self scanning for all Cairde Mhaigheo and Croke Park season tickets.

Season ticket self scanning information for Mayo and Dublin supporters. On Sunday, All Cairde Mhaigh Eo card holders and Croke Park Season Ticket holders will enter through stiles 1 -8 as normal. However from this Sunday, self-scanning is being introduced, meaning that you – yes YOU – will be responsible for scanning your own season ticket. Which means no blaming anyone else if your attendance record fails to update …

So here’s how it will work:  Once patrons enter the stile they will swipe their card through a card reader which will allow access while also automatically uploading their attendance. Stewards will be stationed at each of the new season ticket self scanning turnstiles to assist patrons.

Why is this happening? Croke Park announced earlier this year that they would be rolling out new systems to all GAA grounds around the country. This would obviously be on a phased basis and it seems that MacHale Park in Castlebar is the first GAA ground in line for the technological upgrade! We for one welcome our new technological overlords and when supporters scan their season tickets in the new scanners, as well as granting access through the stile, your attendance will also be recorded and automatically uploaded to Croke Park. This should mean that your attendance will be updated as soon as your season ticket is scanned, the same as what happens in Croke Park upon entry. Hopefully this should put an end to the numerous problems supporters encountered last year with their tickets not being scanned correctly and their attendance not being updated.

Mayo Club 51 strongly recommends that all supporters get to MacHale Park in plenty of time on Saturday. As with any new system, it will be new to everyone and while hopefully there will be minimal traffic jams, with the amount of season ticket holders in Mayo and Dublin, the scanning process may take a little getting used to on the first day.

Those attending with children should note that Stiles 6-8 have now been designated family turnstiles.

The turnstiles will be open a half hour earlier on Saturday at 5.00. All ticketing and match day info here.

As always, don’t forget to bring along some colour to the game – there has been a serious increase in the amount of flags appearing at games recently and it looks great. Keep up the good work!

Update: Season ticket scanners in operation for the first time last year in Mac Hale Park.

Looking ahead to 2015 – Club ’51 is back on the road

Looking ahead to 2015 – Club ’51 is back on the road

Time to plan

As the dust settles on our first FBD campaign under Noel and Pat, it’s time to start looking ahead to 2015 and to the first real competitive action of the season. With that, we turn our faces towards Killarney and the first Allianz National League game against the Kerrymen who broke our hearts below in Limerick last August. The less said about that the better, and as a new era begins, we will be getting behind our lads more than ever. On that note, it’s time for a quick update on the Club ’51 front on our plans for that game and for the subsequent games in the League.

Seating Groups

Seating groups are a good way of getting groups of supporters together in grounds with allocated seating. They were a great success last year and more and more people are either setting up or joining groups as the club grows. This year, you can use either your Croke Park or your Cairde Maigh Eo season ticket to join a seating group, and we have all the latest information and have started the list of 2015 groups in our post over hereWe’ve had loads of enquiries already from people interested in joining a seating group this year, so if  you already have one with vacant spaces or would like to set one up, let us know and we’ll put you in touch.

Getting To Away Games

We’ll be doing our usual car pooling posts (keep an eye on our forum here or contact us on Facebook, Twitter or email). Anyone with space in a car or a bus that needs filling over the coming weeks let us know! We’ll have information on parking etc. on the site too in due course. Don’t forget the ‘fiver for the driver’!

Your car doesn’t have to look like this, but it helps

If anyone is organising buses to Killarney for 1st February, let us know and we’ll post them here. We have one so far:

  • The Sea Rod Inn, Doohoma are hoping to organise a bus – for queries contact Sean on 0851698851.

Pre-Match Meetups

From the first meeting in the Liffey Arms, Newbridge on 2nd Feb last year to various days out in Jury’s across from Croker these were a great success last year, so looking ahead to 2015 we’ll be continuing the new tradition of picking a pre-match meeting point close to the grounds for Mayo fans to congregate before games and  grab a cuppa/lunch/tipple/whatever tickles your fancy. We’ll be announcing these here the week before games and are looking for suggestions for Killarney, Cork and Derry.

Similarly, there will be a good crew making their way to away game venues the night before so what better excuse to go for a couple of scoops and psyche out the opposition fans?  We’ll also be making a weekend of the Dublin game so expect some Castlebar festivities to be announced close to St. Patrick’s weekend.

Sea of Green And Red

Part of the inspiration for Club ’51 came from these guys on Facebook who joined forces with us and were instrumental in making the Mayo support as loud and colourful as it was in 2014. We’re aiming for more of the same in 2015 and starting as we mean to go on. Last year Mayo revived an old tradition and we saw a huge increase in the number of flags at matches. Nowhere was it more evident than in the video below from the first Kerry game (scroll to 1.51). We want recreate the incredible atmosphere of that game many times again this year and you can play your part. If every household brings a flag, think of the spectacle we’ll create! So up you get into that attic and dig out the flags.

We have a number of Club ’51 flags, and if you’ve seen them in the grounds and want to get your hands on one of your own all the information you need is here.

Other Stuff

We’ll also be attempting to do the following over the coming months:

  • Organising more charity events after the success of our inaugural table quiz last year
  • More competitions – watch this space
  • Some more displays. This could be in the form of stick flags, banners or any other sort of visual display. We are eager to get people’s ideas on this so please don’t be shy, and if you’re feeling creative don’t hesitate to make your own flags or banners.

How You Can Get Involved

Making Club ’51 a success takes time and effort, but it’s also great fun and the more people involved, the better. So if there’s anything you’d like to get involved with, or if you feel you can lend some expertise, we’d love to hear from you. Be that writing some guest posts, helping us on our social media sites, volunteering at our table quizzes or sponsoring some competition or quiz prizes, we’d be delighted to welcome you on board.

Bring your own flags, but we are also  looking for 4-5 people to become flag custodians and wave our flags on match days. We have a good few people on this front but still have some that need a good, caring home with regular matchgoers –  and an energetic arm!

That’s it for now …

  .. but keep an eye out for updates, and spread the word ( you can share our posts on Facebook, retweet us, get our logo tattooed on your face, or just tell people you meet).

And most importantly, get out those flags, warm up the vocal cords and play your part in becoming the 16th man this year.

Maigh Eo Abú!
