Come one, come all to Gärdet Sportfält in the heart of the Swedish capital, as the Gaelic football season kicks off!
It’s the opening round of the Nordic Gaelic football championship, and this year the Stockholm Gaels will be entering two teams in the regional competition. Our old friends and rivals from Gothenburg, Malmö and Oslo will travel to meet us, with only Copenhagen missing due to a lack of numbers.
On the ladies’ side, the bulk of the action will take place later in the summer, but there is still a competitive tournament with championship points on offer.
The tournament marks a return to where it all began for the Gaels, as it was at Gärdet that our first kickabout took place back in 2009. With newly-refurbished dressing rooms and plenty of wide-open space, we look forward to getting another great season underway.
There will be catering available all day from our sponsors at the Dubliner, and with fun for all the family, we hope to see as many people as possible turn out to see this unique sporting event.
The action starts at 1030 with activities for kids kicking off at 1300. The finals are due to take place at 1600; at the request of Ireland’s Minister for Sport, a minute’s silence to be held before them to honour those affected by Ireland’s great famine in the mid-1800s.
So come along and join us – we promise a great day, on and off the field!!
