We’ve always had a strong Gaelic football setup here at Belgium GAA and our Mens’ Gaelic football team more often than not is competing for Championships by the end of the season. We have three Mens’ football championships to our name – 2008, 2012 and 2014 – but have been close on a number of other occasions as well.
2022 is no different and the team will be working hard again this year with the aim of being crowned Champions, first of the Benelux Championship this summer, and afterwards the pan-European Championship and the 15-a-side Championship in the autumn.
We are always looking for new members of the football panel, so if you are interested, be sure to get in touch.
What is Gaelic Football?
Gaelic Football is a popular Irish team sport played between two teams of 15. In Europe, we play a 9-a-side version of the game. The objective is to kick or punch the ball over the opposing team’s crossbar (1 point) or kick it into the goal (3 points). Here’s a nice video of some of the best players in Ireland showing how it’s done.
What a game! Get in touch and give it a try – I promise you wont regret it!
