USGAA Finals are coming to Denver

A Uniquely Irish Event

Gaelic games are central to Irish culture. Every town in Ireland, and almost every village, has a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club.

The earliest games of hurling in North America were played in St. John’s Newfoundland in 1788, and there are records of gaelic football being played in Hyde Park in San Francisco as early as the 1850s.

Today, gaelic games in the United States are governed by the USGAA, with over 130 active adult clubs, over 180 teams, and 4500+ members across the country. These clubs will compete to attend the USGAA Playoffs in Denver on the 18th – 20th of August 2023, for the title of National Champions in their respective grades.

It is expected that up to 1500 players along with over 1000 spectators from across North America will travel to Denver and the surrounding Colorado area for the event.
