All tickets for Saturday's eagerly anticipated Kilkenny v Tipperary clash at Nowlan Park have now been sold.

The GAA Ticket Office confirmed this afternoon that all of the 24,000 tickets have been snapped up. They have advised ticket holders to arrive as early as possible on Saturday night.

The Phase 2 qualifier is set for a 7pm throw-in.

Dublin's first Championship victory over Kilkenny since 1942 shook up this year's Championship.

Dublin's well deserved 1-16 to 0-16 win on Saturday in Portlaoise means the Cats now face the very real prospect of their season ending in July.

Tipperary find themselves in the qualifiers following a Munster semi -final defeat to Limerick.

A rip-roaring final 20 minutes from Limerick saw them run out 1-18 to 1-15 winners and sets up this rematch of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 All-Ireland finals.

The qualifier has prompted a scramble for tickets for fans from both counties.

The Kilkenny county board announced this evening that a planned public sale of tickets has been cancelled because of the 'unprecedented demand from clubs'.
