Munster GAA officials have tonight been informed that the attendance limit for Sunday's Munster SFC final between Cork and Kerry at Fitzgerald Stadium will remain at 2,500.
This means that 1,000 will be seated in the stand and 1,500 in the terrace. Both Kerry and Munster GAA had hoped that figure would increase.
They made an updated submission to Government this week seeking an increase the attendance limit to around 4,000, detailing the necessary adjustments and arrangements that they would make.
But they were told tonight there will be no change to the 2,500 as the Government exercises extreme caution in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Munster GAA PRO Bob Ryan confirmed the news.
"We have just been informed there will be no change to the crowd numbers for Sunday's football final in Killarney. It stays at 2,500," Ryan said.
Increased attendances have however been confirmed for this weekend's All-Ireland SHC qualifiers.
There will be 3,500 fans permitted for the clash of Cork and Clare at the LIT Gaelic Grounds, while 4,400 spectators can turn up for the Galway v Waterford game at Semple Stadium.
The changes were confirmed by Minister of State for Sport Jack Chambers.
On Sunday, Croke Park will play host to the Connacht SFC final between Galway and Mayo, where a capacity of 18,000 has been set.
