Tournaments

Our season revolves around two regional tournaments, and is supplemented with touring, hosting visiting teams and playing exhibition matches.

Asian Gaelic Games

Now in its twentieth year, the Asian Gaelic Games (AGG), typically held in October, is the major tournament of the year with over 700 players from cities in Asia through to the Gulf travelling to compete in the largest regional gathering of the Irish, and friends of Ireland, in Asia. This event is directly preceded by the Asia Pacific Ireland Business Forum, which is attended by business leaders, ambassadors and government ministers, making for the biggest celebration of Irish business success, sport and culture in the region. The AGG was hosted by ThaiGAA in Bangkok in 2009 and there are plans for it to return to Thailand in 2017. At this year’s AGG in Shanghai the Thai Ladies claimed their 3rd win in 4 years with our men’s team losing narrowly in the final. Off the field the club was awarded Asia Club of the Year in recognition of our contribution in promoting the sport in Thailand, our popularity and competitiveness as a club and our recent successes on the field and in hosting tournaments.

South Asia Gaelic Games

The South Asia Gaelic Games is a tournament primarily for southeast Asia nations. ThaiGAA hosted this event in 2012 and more recently in May of this year when 300 players travelled to Bangkok to take part in the event held at Harrow International School. The Thai Ladies were again successful, overcoming the traditional Asian powerhouses of Singapore and Malaysia to claim the overall title, while the men’s team were victorious in the plate competition. Given the success of this years event the competition plans to return to Bangkok in 2016.
