The spare tickets are from the original allocation given to the county board from Croke Park.
Each club has been given between five and seven extra tickets.
With so many genuine fans unable to get tickets, it will surely spark another scramble for them tonight especially among clubs where tickets have already been given out.
Clubs which still have to allocate tickets are expected to add the small number of extra tickets to their distribution lists.
The shortage of tickets has sparked an unprecedented scramble for them.
There is also considerable annoyance at the large number of terrace tickets sent to clubs by GAA HQ.
Touts of course are cashing in; seeking payment of between 350 euro and 1,000 euro for tickets.
The GAA has warned it will investigate any reported ticket touting.
