REVEALED: The 100 lucky supporters win right to see crunch Offaly football game

100 lucky supporters win right to see crunch Offaly football game

Kilcormac/Killoughey club man Brendan Monaghan watching Offaly beat Down in hurling last Sunday. Brendan has won the right to buy a ticket for this Saturday's big football game.

100 lucky supporters have won the right to purchase tickets for Saturday's crunch National Football League Division 3 semi-final against Fermanagh in Tullamore.

200 supporters will be allowed at the game and the Offaly GAA County Board decided to give supporters an opportunity to get their hands on 100 of them – Fermanagh will get a small portion while Offaly are likely to give others to players and officials.

They invited supporters to enter a draw for the right to purchase a ticket. There were over 1,500 entrants and the 100 names were announced on Wednesday night.

The supporters come from all over the county and it will be the first time for most to see an Offaly football game live in well over a year.

Saturday's game will be Offaly's biggest one of the year, and indeed a number of years. While a Leinster Senior Football Championship date against Louth is just around the corner, promotion to Division 2 would make the season a great success.

Offaly have performed very well to date, qualifying for the semi-final with wins over Wicklow, Limerick and Tipperary. Fermanagh represents a great chance for them to go up and it throws in at 6pm.
