Although supporters of Limerick and Waterford, Antrim and Kerry and hurling supporters in general won’t be able to attend Sunday’s Croke Park decider, they can still get their hands on a physical copy of their match programme via the GAA’s publishers DBA .
A soft copy PDF will be sent by email on the morning of the match, followed by a hard copy in the post.
The match programme will also be available in both Limerick and Waterford on the day before the game from selected Centra and SuperValu shops.
GAA Director of Communication Alan Milton said,
“For many, acquiring a match programme is an intrinsic part of the match day experience, not just at Croke Park but at all of our venues.
“This is especially true on All-Ireland final day where partisans and neutrals alike collect and keep their prized souvenir programmes.
“While the masses can’t come to Croke Park to enjoy the final, they can still order a copy of the programme and receive it in both hard and soft copy formats.
“We hope many avail of the opportunity and keep up a long standing tradition despite the challenges of staging the championships over the course of 2020.”
This year’s programme features exclusive interviews with Limerick’s Dan Morrissey and Waterford’s Jake Dillon, detailed player profiles from both the Waterford and Limerick panels, insights into the Joe McDonagh Cup final between Antrim and Kerry, features from leading writers such as Enda McEvoy, Christy O’Connor, John Harrington and Brian Murphy, as well as the traditional and all important information around the starting teams for both sides.
To mark this year’s new arrangements, the GAA and publishing partners DBA Publications are offering one lucky competition entrant a prize of a €500 voucher for either Centra or SuperValu.
Entering the competition couldn’t be simpler, as all that supporters have to do is choose which cover they think will front this year’s hurling finals match programme – see the selection below.
