All Set for Round 2!
Last weekend, there were Kerry Petroleum Club Championship games played all over the County.
The crowd was limited due to Covid Restrictions but the lack of atmosphere in the Stand and on the Terraces had little effect on the intensity of the games. There were some incredible battles and some surprising results! It is wonderful to have the spotlight completely focused on Club Action! All the results and tables can be found on the Kerry GAA website.
I must commend all the clubs who are finding innovative ways to bring the action to their club members. Some are video streaming, others are audio streaming and others are sending us highlight reels from the recordings of their games. I strongly encourage Club PROs to tweet regular updates and provide a match report as soon as possible after the games ends. Now more than ever, the lucky few that get in must keep everyone else updated on the match progress
Last Sunday evening, the CCC held their meeting and confirmed the fixtures for Round 2.
All fixtures are on the Kerry GAA website.
Again, tickets for these games have to be pre purchased through the club. If you do not have a ticket, please do not go to the grounds as you will not be admitted.
At this stage most Pass Holders from the different schemes have registered and they will have access to a special pool of tickets for Round 2 and Round 3 games. Pass Holders will be limited to one game per round. Those who haven’t yet registered are encouraged to do immediately on the Kerry GAA website.
Our thanks to everyone who supported us by purchasing the online stream last weekend. This weekend we are streaming two more games.
On Friday night at 7pm, we are showing the local derby game between Kenmare Shamrocks and Templenoe which will be played in Templenoe.
On Saturday at 3pm the featured game is in Dingle between Killarney Legion and Dingle.
The stream can be purchased for €5 per game on the Kerry GAA website. Each weekend, we will introduce new features to enhance our streamed games.
Next weekend as all games are fixed for ‘Home Venues’ the home PRO is asked to produce the team-sheets. We will be sending out the templates and they are to be returned to us before Thursday evening.
All match programmes will be uploaded onto the Kerry GAA website on the morning of the games. This proved to be very popular last weekend. If you prefer, you can download and print a copy to bring with you to the grounds or simply have it on your phone at the game or while watching the stream!
