Jim Stynes Tournament
The Jim Stynes Tournament is the annual International Rules tournament hosted by Hong Kong GAA, playing against the local Australian Rules Football Club, Hong Kong Dragons.
The tournament is played in memory of Jim Stynes, born in Dublin and a prominent Australian Rules footballer after converting from Gaelic at the age of 18 and went on to be inducted to the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
The teams will play a game of compromised rules between the sports and swap out between a Gaelic Football and Australian Rules football between the halves.
This year, the tournament will be split between 2 pitches, Aberdeen Sports Club and Wong Chuk Hang Recreation Ground. Not to fear though, they are a 2 minute walk from each other to catch all the action.
