Amsterdam takes centre stage in the European GAA calendar this weekend as the 3rd round of the Benelux Mens Championship and 2nd round of the Benelux Ladies Championship takes place on Saturday May 10th. We’re heading up at unmentionable o’clock tomorrow morning, with squads depleted by the recent rush to leave Brussels, the ongoing European Election campaigns (for the love of god, please vote people) and the month of May and its generous Bank Holidays.
We’re very much looking forward to playing against unknown teams in the shape of Dusseldorf ladies and our other familar friends, Luxembourg, and Holland Ladies. Two Belgian ladies teams will head up – with a 2014 record breaking 6 matches potentially ahead of us. WHOOOP!
In the Mens Championship, Belgium will face Amsterdam who’ll be looking to avenge their defeat in the final by Belgium in our home tournament in Kituro last month – Dusseldorf GFC, Eindhoven Shamrocks, Luxembourg and newcomers to the Benelux Championship, the somewhat geographically challenged Zurich Inneoin, will also take part in the competition.
We’ll be updating you on Facebook, but really looking forward to a great day of competition and the promised BBQ in the fancy new clubhouse in Amsteelveen, followed by an evening watching Kasper Juul presenting the Eurovision upon our return to Devs.
