About Gaelic Football

Gaelic Football is an Irish Sport. It is played between 2 teams of 15 players on a field similar to a soccer field. There are 2 ways to score in Gaelic: through kicking or punching the ball into goals for 3 points or through 2 uprights over the goal for 1 point. Gaelic uses many different skills from various sports such as soccer, rugby, lacrosse and basketball to name a few. Head to our "How to Play Gaelic Football" album or to the videos tab to see some Gaelic Football in action. Or better yet come and practice or see us play!

Twin Cities Gaelic Football Club is a Minnesota Non-Profit Organization that supports and develops amateur athletes at all skill levels, regardless of gender, race, etc., for national and international competition in the sport of Gaelic Football.

Back in 2007, we started a Gaelic Football team in the Twin Cities. Weekly practices in Spring and Summer are on Sundays and Wednesday. We train for competition with other clubs in the region and in the NAGAA national championships every Summer over Labor Day weekend.

Any levels of fitness or commitment are welcomed. If you are out of shape and just want someone to work out with, or you want to play for a serious team hoping to win a national title, that works too!
