Dublin's League clash with Kerry on March 18 in Tralee is now an effective sell-out.

All online ticket sources have been exhausted through GAA.ie and their retail ticket partners. The Kerry County Board have confirmed to the Herald that they are expecting a 11,500 capacity crowd in a repeat of last year's All-Ireland semi-final.

Some 10,500, including approximately 5,500 season tickets, have now been sold.

An extra 1,000 are expected to be made available next week pending the finding of a health and safety report into Austin Stack Park.

Existing demand for those tickets guarantees a sell out.

Tickets went on general sale last Monday morning, with 5,000 snapped up by Wednesday evening.

Dublin's season ticket allocation will account for 3,400 of that capacity, while Kerry's is 2,000 and Croke Park expect a full uptake.

The demand falls into line with a huge boost in League attendances so far this year.

As with all potential sell-out games, there is a €5 charge for children.

Jim Gavin's team have not played in Kerry since their March 2015 League loss in Killarney - their last defeat in League or Championship.
