Inaugural Gaelic Football League Starts NEXT WEEK

And we’ll be playing INSIDE.

Don’t let the heat of the summer sun discourage you from picking up a new sport. Our first ever Gaelic football league starts on July 9, and we’re playing every match indoors.

The four-week season will take a break on July 15 so that those who want to go to Atlanta for the Peach Cup tournament can attend. That means the dates for the league are:

  • July 9
  • July 23
  • July 30
  • August 6

We have enough signed up to form three teams, so we’ll do a round robin each week. Winners will receive 2 points, ties will receive 1 point, and a loss results in 0. The team with the most points at the end of the season will be the champions.

Sign up now!

Training Sessions

If you’ve never played before, that’s okay. There’s still one more training session before the league starts, so you can get the basic rules down. Then join us every week throughout the league and beyond to continue honing your new skills.

Training sessions Thursday evenings at 6 pm until sundown. If you can’t be there right at 6, that’s ok! We’re all doing this for fun. We’d rather see you late than to not see you at all.

Team and Jersey Reveal

To play in the league, you have to pay membership dues to the NGAC, plus the league fees. Membership is $20 for the year and gives you the privilege to vote at any club meetings, as well as the ability to travel with the club to tournaments. League fees are $40 and help cover the cost of our indoor facility and your snazzy new jersey.

You’ll learn who your team is and see your new jersey after training on July 6. We’ll all gather at our sponsor pub, East Nashville Beer Works for the big reveal. It’s a celebration, so you don’t want to miss it!

Support Our Sponsors

We welcome back East Nashville Beer Works as the first of our Gaelic football league sponsors. They’ve been incredibly supportive of the club, serving as one of our spring league sponsors for hurling.

We’re also grateful to One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, who have signed on as our corporate sponsor. Owner Mick is from the Mother Land, and he’s thrilled to support Irish culture as we spread it throughout Middle Tennessee.

Our brewery sponsor, Asgard Brewing Company, has joined on for the summer season, too. Though located in Columbia, TN, they’ve been excited about lending support to the club for months. We’re so honored and grateful for the support, and the delicious beer.
