Good news for GAA fans.

The GAA has vowed to cancel any tickets sold above face value in an effort to stop tickets touts.

This means that anyone going to Galway's clash with Limerick with tickets bought from touts on reselling websites will be locked out.

According to the Irish Mirror, the GAA said, "Tickets for All-Ireland finals are distributed directly to our clubs and county committees."

“Any being sold in excess of face value on touting websites that are brought to the attention of the GAA will be automatically cancelled."

“The association also routinely monitors ticket touting websites and, where possible, endeavours to establish the original source of the tickets, taking action where necessary."

“We look forward to the co-operation of our members and supporters in this matter and urge everyone to purchase tickets from official sources only.”

This comes on the back of Ticketmaster's announcement that they were closing their reselling website, Seatwave, earlier this week.
