It had been indicated on Wednesday afternoon that only 500 fans would be allowed to attend. By that stage, Waterford received 240 tickets for the players and backroom team.
Approximately 1,500 additional tickets have now been given to each county which will be distributed to the clubs in the coming days. Any remaining tickets will go on general sale.
