86% of GAA income is reinvested in Grassroots Development
The 2010 Central GAA Accounts show a 2% increase in the investment of Association revenue to Clubs and Counties up to 86%. The figure is up from 84% in 2009 and currently 14% of income is being reserved for GAA administration Costs.
This makes the GAA unique and something we should be very proud of as no other sporting, cultural and community organisation returns this level of revenue or makes the significant social and economic contribution that the GAA does to Irish life.
When you attend a match during the 2011 Championship series the majority of your entrance fee goes back to the development of your Club and your County. Spectators under 16 gain access for free to all non-ticket fixtures as does spectators with a disability who apply to their County Committee for a pass. Family tickets are also available for all ticketed games.
