We thought that the day would never come…
Wexford GAA are once again expecting some big crowds in Chadwicks Wexford Park again and it’s safe to say that we are excited.
From today, Monday 6th September, the restrictions on outdoor events have changed.
In a statement, Wexford GAA noted that they will be opening their gates to half-capacity size, which is great news for people longing for a sense of normality.
“The government’s regulations in respect of outdoor events change from today, 6 September. As a result of the changes, we will be allowed 50% capacity at all our venues.”
“We are delighted to be welcoming our supporters back from next weekend. While we get ramped up for higher attendances, we do ask that you are patient with us and leave sufficient time to gain access to the grounds. We also ask that you wear a face covering coming through our stiles to respect our volunteers working on the gates. Social distancing should also be maintained, both while queueing to come through stiles and at the game. The use of face masks in the grounds is still recommended,” a spokesperson for Wexford GAA said.
The news has come at a perfect time, as Wexford are now into the deep end of the championship. The Senior hurling club semi-finals are due to take place this weekend, with both games down to take place at Chadwicks Wexford Park.
It’ll be part of a double header of games between Glynn-Barntown and the Rapparees (2:15pm), and St Annes versus the title holders, Shelmaliers (4:15pm).
It must be noted, however, that entry to games will remain by ticket only. Cash will not be accepted at the gates.
Tickets will go on general sale from Wednesday morning through the Official Wexford GAA website at wexfordgaa.ie/tickets. Tickets will also be on sale through Pettit’s Supervalu stores throughout the county.
