The 2019 Renault GAA World Games will bring some 1,300 players from 10 regions around the globe home to play this summer.
This will mark the third-ever staging of the competition with this year's Games set to be the biggest and best yet. The initial stages of the event will take place between July 28th and August 1st at Waterford Institute of Technology's Sports campus, with the finals being played at Croke Park, Dublin, August 2nd, 2019.
In keeping with the tradition of other GAA festivals, visiting teams will be twinned with local clubs throughout Waterford to enhance the social and cultural element of the Games. There are now more than 400 GAA Clubs in existence outside of Ireland and this is reflected in the presence of 97 teams that are confirmed for the Renault GAA World Games and representing clubs from across Europe, New York, USGAA, South Africa, Argentina, Canada, Britain, Australasia, India, Asia and the Middle East.
World titles for Football, Ladies football, Hurling and Camogie will be on offer with competing teams made up specifically of native born or Irish born players. There will be eight finals in all on a hectic day of international activity at Croke Park and with four finals staged for Irish-born players in Football, Ladies football, Hurling and Camogie and then another four finals for native born players competing across the four codes.
