Mayo v Donegal is a sell-out – for now

The Mayo versus Donegal Super 8s game is a sell-out – at least for now.

The capacity for the game – which will throw in at 6 p.m. in Elverys MacHale Park, Castlebar, on Saturday, August 3 – has been set at 25,000 for health and safety reasons, but The Connaught Telegraph understands that every effort is being made to get a second game played at the venue that day, which would enable the capacity to be increased to over 30,000.

The result of all that effort should be known within the next 24 hours.

In the meantime, fans hoping to secure tickets for the match at the usual retail outlets are being left disappointed.

The match itself is a virtual All-Ireland quarterfinal, although a draw would be enough for Donegal to secure a place in the last four. Mayo, on the other hand, need nothing less than a victory to go through. Dublin, Tyrone and Kerry are already through to the semi-finals.
