Membership

Marathon Man Keith Hearne

To become a member of the Stockholm Gaels, simply deposit your membership fee and send us an e-mail.

As decided by the 2011 AGM, there are different types of membership for players, non-players and families. Every effort is made to keep these fees as low as possible and all memberships run from Jan 1 – Dec 31 each year.

Please note that to be eligible for the Scandinavian and European Championships as well as the Ambassador Cup, you must have paid your player’s or family membership.

The club is still working to solve the insurance question- as we are not recognised as a sport in this country, we are not covered by the Riksidrottsförbundet insurance policy. You are advised to check the cover offered by your home/employment insurance and to  take out complimentary private sports and/or travel insurance if necessary.

Family membership – 700 SEK per year.

Single playing membership – 500 SEK per year.

Social membership - 250 SEK per year.

The Gaels Bond - The Gaels Bond is a Direct Debit payment of 100 SEK per month, which goes directly to supporting the club and its activities. The Gaels bond doesn’t replace your normal membership and confers no special rights, apart from a party each year to coincide with the All Ireland Football Final.

The reason for the bond is simple and economic- we deliberately keep our membership fees as low as possible to ensure that everyone can be a member and take part in our games and our club. We are lucky to have some of the most generous sponsors in sport, but even then there is always room for more. Our club is still young and growing, and if we are to continue to offer facilities and activities for mens’, ladies’ and junior members, we need all the resources we can get!

To join the bond scheme, set up a direct debit to the club’s Bank Giro 636-8039 and send us an e-mail – you’ll be put on the list of bondholders and invited to the party in September!
