Gaelic football, commonly referred to as football or Gaelic, is an Irish team sport. It is played between two teams of 15 players on a rectangular grass pitch.

The Gaelic Football Championships offers: 

  • preliminary league rounds
  • qualification to a final championship knock-out competition.
     

Leagues and Knockouts for 2020-21

Having reviewed the latest roadmaps of the home nations (with an acknowledgement that this is constantly shifting), BUCS felt it would be possible to deliver some competition in Term Three. An informal league offer was deemed to be the most realistic offer of Term Three, with entries closing on Thursday 1 April.

The Competitions team have completed their assessment of entries into the Term Three Opt-in Competition, and unfortunately are unable to provide an offer due to lack of demand, geographical distances, or competitive imbalances.

The team entry process for the 2021-22 season is currently under review, more information will be released shortly.
