Hamburg GAA has been up and running since the summer of 2015, when like-minded people got together to expand on the great work of the GAA and bring the Gaelic Games to the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (‘Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg’). The club is open to everyone, regardless of gender, sporting history or fitness level, and full training is provided to all.
From the beginnings of informal practice with just a few people in the Hamburg Stadtpark to regular proper training sessions involving expats and locals alike, the club now competes in Germany and across Europe in the codes hurling, camogie and Gaelic football.
The crest is made up of the City’s colours Red and Blue (of which the Hamburg GAA jerseys are composed) and shows a castle with three towers and two Marian stars, which are said to symbolise the fact that Hamburg used to be an archbishopric.
