Welcome!

 

Over the last few years Escape and Play have hosted several tournaments and trips and these have provided us all with great memories and moments. Its time we did it again.

So with that in mind Escape & Play are both delighted and proud to announce 3 unique Gaelic Football tournaments to be held in beautiful Andalucia.

We are inviting clubs like yours to travel to the warm climates of southern Spain and play Gaelic Football with old friends to make some new friends and spend some quality time with teammates on and off the pitch to celebrate our fantastic games.

Combine that with a welcoming atmosphere, great food, and a few REALLY cold beers and it has never failed to be, well, special.

So check out the details below, get in touch with us and we look forward to hosting you on one of the three tournament dates!

*And remember! The sooner you register the cheaper flights will be!

The tournament is a privately run event but we have been sanctioned by the GGE (Gaelic Games Europe) and the Iberian sub region.
