The GAA have told Off the Ball this evening that they hope to have more tickets available  for this weekend's hugely anticipated All-Ireland senior football semi-final between five-in-a-row chasing Dublin, and James Horan's Mayo.

In a response to a query on the ticket situation, the Association this evening said: "We hope to have some more tickets for general sale as soon as the club allocations are finalised."

This Saturday's last four clash gets underway at Croke Park at 5pm, and it is expected to be a sell-out. Fans of both counties were this morning left facing huge delays in nabbing tickets, with queues both online and in stores nationwide.

As of this afternoon there was a queue of nearly 25,000 people queueing for tickets online on Tickets.ie, the GAA’s official ticketing partner, before the system paused around 2.30pm.

Some fans claimed to have been waiting online in queues for up to four hours before the system before the system appeared to pause.

Tickets.ie had provided a social media update earlier on this afternoon.

“Tickets for both semi-finals are still on sale - retail and online,” the company told social media users.

“There are no issues with the listing however there is a queuing system in place to manage the very high column of traffic on the website.

“We do apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you get your tickets."

The sides have faced each other seven times this decade in the championship, with the Dubs winning four of those, Mayo winning one and two finishing in a stalemate. 

Their last championship meeting was the 2017 All-Ireland final, which Dublin won by a solitary point to secure the three-in-a-row.

Although Dublin and Mayo's tie is set to be a sell-out, the other last-four game at HQ this weekend is not expected to have the same demand.

Unbeaten Kerry will take on Mickey Harte's Tyrone side on Sunday afternoon, with a half past three throw-in.
