The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Gaelic Players Association (GPA) are delighted to announce the launch of GaelicBoots.com, a new online service offering a wide range of children’s, men’s and women’s football boots and sports footwear to members and supporters.
GaelicBoots.com will supply all major brands of boots, runners and trainers including adidas, Puma, Nike and Umbro offering excellent price, choice, availability and delivery at the click of a button and delivered to the customer’s door within 72 hours.
Focusing exclusively on the Irish market, the GAA and GPA will be encouraging hurlers and footballers of all ages and standards, from club juvenile to senior inter-county, to avail of the wonderful value and service at gaelicboots.com while helping to support player welfare in the process.
The announcement is the latest joint commercial venture between the GAA and the players’ body and will help generate funding for a range of player welfare and development programmes.
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill welcomed the announcement: “I welcome this joint initiative which is a further indication of the ongoing co-operation between the GAA and the GPA.
“In addition to establishing another joint venture between the two organizations gaelicboots.com will also provide players of all ages and grades with access to the best playing equipment. It will also see tangible benefits in the area of player welfare”.
Gaelic Players Association chairman Dónal Óg Cusack added: “The launch of GaelicBoots.com is a very significant step in the joint commercial operations between the GPA and GAA as player welfare, at both county and club level, will benefit from its success. This is the fourth joint venture between both bodies and a great opportunity for players of all grades to support their own by shopping on our website. I’d like to congratulate all the parties involved in developing this excellent initiative.”
Inter-county players Pádraic Maher (Tipperary), Lee Chin (Wexford), Cillian O’Connor (Mayo), Patrick McBrearty (Donegal), and Ciarán Kilkenny (Dublin) were all unveiled today as brand ambassadors for GaelicBoots.com.
