However, sometimes, match day can be a little stressful. Making sure you have everything is the most important, and trying to find somewhere to park is a task in itself.
As much as we love to think of a match day taking place on a glorious sunny day, the reality is folks, we live in Ireland, we all know how Irish summers like to play out.
Invest in a good raincoat, that is nice and light so you don’t sweat too much walking to and from the stadium. Plus it is easy to pop in your bag.
As much as the rain can pour on any GAA match day, the sun can also shine. A great pair of sunglasses are an investment piece and will see you through the summer following the Championship.
They are ideal for when you are trying to study the game from the stands and for the drive! Check out the full range of sunglasses right here.
The journey to the stadium can be a little stressful. Make it 100 times easier for yourself and get a Sat Nav for the car. It will avoid you getting lost and will provide you with the quickest route possible to your destination.
If you are travelling into some unknown territory for match day, there is a chance you will encounter some tolls along the way. Keep a coin purse handy, so you avoid that moment of panic as you approach the barriers!
Also, if you have little ones with you, you are guaranteed a trip to the snack stand at halftime. And it wouldn’t be match day if you didn’t get yourself a programme! Your loose change will come in handy!
Make sure you are home in time for The Sunday Game!
And the best thing about it is, you will need all these essentials the following weekend, as a summer of sport lies ahead! Are you excited? We sure are!
