The GAA have turned down a request by Galway and Armagh to play their All-Ireland championship game in Croke Park.
The game will go ahead on Sunday June 18 in Avant Money Páirc Sean Mác Diarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon. The Leitrim venue holds a maximum capacity of 9,331.
The counties submitted a request earlier today to the GAA's CCCC; to move the game to Croke Park due to expected demand. However the CCCC, have rejected the request.
Tickets for the fixture will be sold online, rather than allocated through clubs.
last year’s All-Ireland quarter-final between the sides, saw over 35,000 fans attend.
Armagh GAA posted on twitter: “Tickets will go on sale via http://gaa.ie/tickets very shortly. No club allocation will be available.
We understand that many of our loyal supporters will be disappointed by this as our request for a change of venue to Croke Park was denied.”

Armagh’s previous Ulster games against Antrim, Cavan and Down had allowed their supporters to buy tickets online, but for the final all tickets were sold through clubs with no online tickets sold.
