Ticket Draw FAQs

100 pairs of tickets are made available to purchase for limited availability sporting fixtures at the stadium such as the GAA All Ireland Finals.

In addition, a further 100 pairs of complimentary tickets are made available for each concert that takes place in the stadium.

There are other ticket offers during the season for local residents including occasional ticket presales that are offered exclusively through the stadium's community ticket scheme.

When tickets are made available, they are distributed by way of a draw amongst those who have registered with Croke Park.
The draws are weighted in favour of households closest to the stadium and are independently observed on behalf of all residents by an external auditor:

  • 40% of tickets are allocated in every draw to households within the stadium’s event day Garda cordon
  • The remaining 60% of tickets are allocated in every draw for qualifying households outside the event day Garda cordon
If you live in Croke Park’s 1.5km community radius, you qualify for the stadium’s local residents’ ticket scheme.  

If you’re unsure, you can contact Croke Park to find out.

Once registered with the stadium, residents are automatically entered into all ticket draws that take place. 

If you live in the stadium' 1.5km qualifying radius - print out the following application form, complete & sign it and send it to:

Local residents can also call into the main Croke Park reception on Jones Road and fill in an application form in person for inclusion in the local residents’ ticket scheme.

Absolutely, an independent auditor from PwC observes the main draw that takes place for each event and the list of winners is published online following the event.

Once you are a qualifying resident, the following applies:
  • Registration is restricted to one per household
  • Completion of the form does not guarantee tickets
  • All local resident tickets are marked not for resale and & can be traced back to the resident who receives them
  • Any attempt to sell local reisdent tickets obtained through Croke Park (for example, through social media, online auction sites, ticket touts, local noticeboards & classifieds) will result in the tickets being automatically cancelled and the local resident disqualified from the database and not included in any future Croke Park ticket draw
