About the World Games
The GAA World Games is a competition that recognises the global expansion of Gaelic games.
In the last 10 years there has been an almost 100 per cent growth in the number of GAA clubs operating outside of Ireland with more than 400 now in existence.
As well as traditional strong holds across Britain and North America, GAA clubs now have a vibrant pulse in operation in Asia, the Middle East, right across Europe and Australia.
New clubs made up of non-native Irish people who have been drawn to, and inspired by Gaelic games is proof of the strengthening of these overseas roots.
The 2016 Etihad Airways GAA World Games is a chance to bring these regions together to celebrate their passion for our games and help them develop even further.
