The GAA have confirmed they will reduce ticket prices for the All-Ireland Football Final Replay.

Dublin and Mayo will meet on October 1st in Croke Park at 5pm. On Sunday afternoon the teams drew 2-09 to 0-15, with Mayo's Cillian O'Connor scoring the equalising point.

Tickets for the Stands will be available for the reduced price of €60 (down from €80). Admission to the Dineen/Hill16 terrace will be for the reduced price of €30 (down from €40).

The ticket prices are more expensive than they were for the All-Ireland Hurling Final Replays of 2012, 2013 and 2014. No Football final has gone to a replay since 2000, when Kerry defeated Galway at the second time of asking.

In addition, the GAA have announced there will be a limited number of €10 tickets available for Under 16s. Those tickets will only be available in Mayo and Dublin.

No tickets will go on general sale. Tickets will be distributed to clubs through the county committees and to Mayo and Dublin's GAA Season Ticket holders.

Mayo are looking to win their first All-Ireland title since 1951, while a win for Dublin will help them retain the title for the first time since 1977.
