Dates

  1. Start Wed 22nd July.
  2. Semi-finals Wed 2nd Sept.
  3. Finals Wed 9th Sept DEACY PARK - subject to availability and GFA safety compliance.

Rules

  1. No junior players can play in the "O35s Division 1" for 2020 - for the avoidance of doubt this must exclude any player who will be registered on FAInet for any junior team in any division (Premier, Division 1/2/3/4, Reserve) for the new 2020-2021 season. This is because the O35s in 2020 directly clashes with Junior competitions; and players who play Junior must put Junior as a higher priority.
  2. All teams must comply with government and FAI guidelines on covid-19.
  3. Any team who does not supply a covid officer on the day will forfeit the match and must pay the referee fee.

Invitation

The 17 clubs who entered teams into the Over 35s that was intended to be run by the Galway FA but was cancelled after the EGM vote by clubs on 3rd June to void the season due to covid-19. The GFA have already refunded clubs with all payments for O35s affiliation and player registration fees.

We are now running the Over 35s as an invitational tournament, under Ger Ryan and Tommy Murphy.

The following facts have to be fully observed:

  1. All return to football has to be in line with FAI and government guidelines.
  2. FAI state that competitive Football can start on 18th July. The earliest that O35s can start is Wed 22nd July.

2020 version of "O35s Division 1"

  1. No junior players can play in the "O35s Division 1" for 2020 - for the avoidance of doubt this must exclude any player who will be registered on FAInet for any junior team in any division (Premier, Division 1/2/3/4, Reserve). This is because the O35s in 2020 directly clashes with Junior competitions; and players who play Junior must put Junior as a higher priority.
  2. The 17 clubs that affiliated in Jan-2020 were invited.
  3. The "O35s Division 1 2020" competition must finish by 9th Sept, sunset will be 8:05pm that evening.
  4. A finish date of 9th Sept gives us a 6-week group stage starting 22nd July.

Galway Over 35s in 2020 (Void at EGM on 3/June/2020 due to Coronavirus)

18 teams confirmed for Galway Over 35s this season, which is up from 14 teams last year.

Competition was voided along with all other Galway FA competitions by club vote at the GFA EGM on 3/June/2020.

The big change we are making this year is to provide clubs with a choice of 2 divisions:
a) "Over 35s Premier" is designed to cater for players who still play Junior football, or players who want to play with and against stronger teams.
b) "Over 35s Division 1" is designed as a recreational league, and players registered in any junior team from Jan-2020 onwards will be ineligible to play in this division.

We are also registering all players using the FAInet registration system.

The fixture schedule will be set to finish with finals around 22nd July in DEACY PARK, so it will all be totally finished before race week.

Next year 2021 we are planning on increasing the number of teams to include companies, which will be a big increase on the recreational league side.
