Cork GAA confirm Semple Stadium as venue for Cork v Clare

Cork GAA have confirmed that the Munster Hurling Championship clash between Cork and Clare will be held in Semple Stadium.

In a statement released this morning, they say that following the meeting of Cork and Limerick in the Munster Hurling Championship on April 17th Pairc ui Chaoimh will switch to concert mode to facilitate the series of concerts by Ed Sheeran.

As a result, the clash with Clare has been moved to Semple Stadium on the weekend of April 30th / May 1st, while the Munster Football Championship semi final between Cork and Kerry has been moved to Pairc ui Rinn on Saturday May 7th.

The statement reads:

The comprehensive fixture list for 2022 makes the best and most practical use available of facilities owned by Cork GAA during what will be an extremely busy period for Páirc Uí Chaoimh. 
 
After the Cork game against Limerick in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship on April 17th, the stadium switches to concert mode to facilitate the series of concerts by Ed Sheeran.
 
Following consultations with, and the agreement of, Munster Council, Tipperary County Board and Clare County board, the Hurling Championship clash against Clare will be held at FBD Semple Stadium on the weekend of April 30th/May 1st. The relevant capacity will allow us to meet the demand for tickets from all Cork supporters.
 
The Munster Senior Football Championship semi-final between Cork and Kerry will take place at Páirc Uí Rinn on Saturday May 7th. The management of both the hurling and football teams have been consulted throughout the process of arranging the fixtures, and Cork GAA would like to thank them for their support.
 
Páirc Uí Chaoimh has a number of games and events planned throughout this period, as normality returns post-COVID. Cork GAA will be liaising closely with residents and other partners in advance of other matches and concerts which are planned for the stadium.

For the matches in Thurles and Páirc Uí Rinn outlined above, premium seat holders will be accommodated in both venues and we will have special plans in place for hospitality on both occasions.
