Hurling fans will be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of the twenty-two club championship games which are scheduled to take place in Tipperary this weekend. And, supporters of the blue and gold can purchase a weekend pass for just €15 which entitles patrons to watch as many games as they can squeeze in.

Facing into the final round of group games there is very little room to manoeuvre as the clubs of the Premier County battle to book their place in the knock-out stage of the FBD Insurance County Senior Hurling Championship, Séamus Ó Riain Cup and the FBD Insurance County Intermediate Hurling Championship. Indeed, two of this weekend's fixtures in the FBD Insurance County Senior Hurling Championship stick out like a poke in the eye.

On Saturday, September 7 at Templetuohy (5pm) Upperchurch-Drombane face Loughmore-Castleiney with a place in the knock-out stage of the competition up for grabs while on Sunday, September 8 there is an identical prize on off when the defending champions Clonoulty-Rossmore take on Toomevara at The Ragg (5.30pm).

The €15 'Weekend Pass' can be purchased from gate checkers at all games on Saturday or from the Tipperary GAA Office in Thurles on Friday up to 5.30pm.
