St Tiernach’s Park will have its new, lower capacity of 29,000 tested for the first time at Sunday’s sell-out Ulster Senior Football Championship final.

Tickets for the game have been snapped up by fans from Donegal and, particularly, Cavan and the sold out signs have been up since late last week.

St Tiernach’s Park used to hold 34,000 spectators, but a health and safety review last year saw that cut by 5,000.

The 2018 Ulster final between Donegal and Fermanagh nearly filled the Clones venue, but there still room for around 1,000 additional punters at the game 12 months ago.

It will be completely filled on Sunday for the 2pm throw-in, with all tickets are sold. There is a small chance that a handful will be returned by the competing counties, though the Ulster Council don’t think this is likely.

Donegal will bring a good crowd despite the fact that this is their eighth provincial decider in nine years and in Cavan demand is through the roof.

"It’s 18 years since Cavan were in an Ulster final and there will be people there on Sunday who weren’t even born when we won our last Ulster title in 1997," said Ulster Council Public Relations Officer, Declan Woods, who is himself a Cavan man.

"It’s a football-mad county so this has been a long drought and it is all that people have been talking about the last few days."

Defending champions Donegal are favourites to win having beaten Division 1 Tyrone in the semi-final with an impressive display of attacking football.

Cavan, who were relegated from the league’s top flight in March, have been excellent so far this summer, beating Monaghan and then Armagh after a replay.

Manager Mickey Graham is working his magic again, having led Longford’s Mullinalaghta to an unlikely Leinster club title win last year, beating Dublin’s Kilmacud Crokes in the final.
