Ulster GAA submitted its planning application for a new provincial 34,000-seater stadium at Casement Park in early 2017 following a 32-week community consultation.

Findings from the consultation process revealed that 95% of people that responded to the design were in favour of the project which proposes a spectator capacity of 34,186.

Tom Daly, Chairman of the Casement Park Project Board said: “Ulster GAA’s Senior Football Final is one of the most passionate, colourful and exciting sporting events you will find anywhere in Ireland or indeed Europe.

“With an eye on our proposed new Provincial Stadium at Casement Park we wanted to share the exciting new fly through of the project which brings to life the outstanding sporting, community, cultural and economic opportunities with GAA members, players and supporters at the game today.

“We are extremely excited about the plans for our new stadium and we want GAA members, people in the local community and everyone that has an interest in the project to see for themselves the impact it will have and to have their voice heard on the project.

“The Ulster GAA team is looking forward to the outcome of the planning application later this year and the opportunities that the stadium will provide for future generations across, Belfast, Antrim and Ulster.”
