The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has warned fans of ticket fraudsters who have been sending out “fake emails” offering non-existent hospitality tickets for Sunday’s All-Ireland Hurling final.

The governing body for Gaelic sports released a small number of tickets on general sale on Tuesday, which all sold-out immediately.

A statement on the GAA’s official website said: “The GAA has been made aware of fake emails in circulation claiming to have All-Ireland hospitality on suite level available.

“The Association is advising members and supporters to disregard these communications as the offering is completely false.

“Croke Park does not use any third party providers for hospitality offerings and all suites are in long term contracts. All hospitality for Sunday is fully booked.

“The GAA also reminds members and supporters to purchase match tickets from official sources only.

“The limited number of terrace tickets that went on sale this week for Sunday’s finals have been sold out.”

The final between Kilkenny and Tipperary will take place at the 82,300-capacity Croke Park stadium in Dublin.
