GAA fans can now follow the action at a match via a new interactive GAA Official Matchday Programmes iOS app. What’s more, fans will also soon be able to peruse match-day programmes from some of the more important matches of the past on the app.

“Launched just as the All-Ireland series of the season commenced, interactive digital GAA Official Match Programmes bring fans even closer to the action, containing essential GAA player and team information, unique content, stats and analysis,” the GAA said.

“It has been built from the ground up with Gaelic Games in mind, blending a stunning interface with the latest information, including live stats, news, photo galleries, stadium and ticketing info plus more, with lots more exciting features in the pipeline.”

One of those features is to be match-day programmes from previous important matches.

Developed by DBA Publications Ltd, the GAA Official Matchday Programmes app can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes store for iPhones and iPads.

The app itself is free to download, but a single edition and back issues of programmes are priced per programme (usually about €5). Fans also have the option of a multiple subscription, for €54.99 for one year.
