Getting The Ticket With The Eircom League Of Ireland

The eircom League of Ireland today announced an exciting new initiative with Ticketmaster, the global leader in ticket sales, which will see tickets for all twelve Premier Division clubs made available through Ticketmaster outlets.

The move will make tickets for top flight eircom League of Ireland action even more accessible as attendance figures at matches continue to rise across the country.

The 2007 season saw over 100,000 extra people attend eircom League of Ireland fixtures and that upward trend has continued into 2008.

The new partnership with Ticketmaster will see tickets for Premier Division matches made available through ticketmaster.ie as well as through Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Supporters hoping to beat the queues can now purchase their match tickets in advance.

The FAI today welcomed the initiative with Ticketmaster - which was launched by model Pippa O'Connor and players David Partridge (St. Patrick's Athletic) and Paul Dunphy (Bray Wanderers) - saying that the move will encourage even more people to enjoy the delights of live football.

Noel Mooney, National Club Promotion Officer said: “Making tickets for our Premier Division matches available through Ticketmaster will open-up our game to a new audience and will encourage people who have never experienced live football to get involved in the eircom League of Ireland. There is no better form of entertainment than live football and that can be seen by the ever-increasing number of people attending our matches”.

Eamonn O'Connor, Managing Director, Ticketmaster, said: "Ticketmaster is delighted to be providing the FAI and the eircom League of Ireland clubs with a modern, hi-tech ticketing facility. The FAI is one of the leading sporting organisations in the country while the clubs provide weekly enjoyment for thousands of people as well as fostering Irish footballing talent. Ticketmaster is very happy to be associated with these worthwhile endeavours and to help make buying tickets even easier for fans."
