THIS year’s Tyrone Club Championship will be an all-ticket affair with no cash handed over at the gates due to the ongoing risk of Covid-19.
With an upper limit of 400 people permitted to gather at outdoor sporting events, each club will only receive 125 tickets for spectators as the figure of 400 includes players, backroom teams, journalists, officials and stewards. Clubs will receive 154 tickets in total ahead of their first-round matches, and all attendees, including players and officials, are required to hold a ticket for admission.
Moreover, there will be only one entrance at all championship venues to facilitate controlled access.
It’s been stipulated that spectators keep their own record of contacts at a match for potential tracing purposes, while supporters are also advised to wear a mask at games.
