Asian Gaelic Games

The Asian Games are the pinnacle of Gaelic games in Asia. It is the tournament that every club looks to as the bench mark to measure your club against, the “Championship” if you will.  From Dubai to Japan and everywhere in-between the AGG’s is what everyone looks forward to.  


Seoul Gaels have always competed fiercely at every Asian Gaelic Games Tournament since their founding in 2002. Seoul enjoyed dominance in the early years winning the men’s A tournament three times in a row from 2002 – 2004, sadly they have not won it since but came very close in 2009 reaching the final in Bangkok.  In the men’s B competition Seoul have enjoyed some success winning it in 2003, on home soil in 2011, and again in Kuala Lumpur in 2012. While in the Men’s Bowl, Seoul came out on top in 2009. Many of our players have received All Stars and MVP awards over the years

Seoul Gaels has a tradition of fielding very strong competitive ladies teams at the Asian Gaelic Games, Sadly the ladies story is one of heart break, always coming agonizingly close! Losing out in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012; always just falling at the final hurdle, twice to Dubai Celts and three times to Singapore Gaelic Lions respectively. Many of our ladies have been rewarded with All Stars throughout the years.
