How do I get tickets?

Tickets are available from kiosks around the ground. The kiosks open 75 minutes before kickoff. Prices can be seen below.

Adult tickets cost €15, Student and OAP tickets are €10 and kids tickets cost just €5. If you are going to be visiting regularly, season tickets offer the best value.

Home and neutral fans are accommodated in the West (Main) and South (behind the goal) Stands. There are some reserved seats for season ticket holder, members, player and officials in the West Stand, these are clearly marked. Otherwise, for most matches, you can choose any unreserved seat.
