County Championship Matches
Tipperary County Board has launched a special county championships match pass costing just €75. The pass will enable holders to attend all remaining county championship games at senior, intermediate, junior and minor in both codes and under 21 hurling (football completed earlier in the season). The pass offers excellent value for money given the number of games which can be attended between now and the completion of all championships. The pass is transferable thereby enabling the owner to pass it on if he/she cannot attend a particular game. Please note that the pass cannot be used to attend divisional games or juvenile games.
Tipperary Intermediate Hurlers
