VAN ISLE ROVERS
GAELIC ATHLETIC CLUB
The Van Isle Rovers GAC are happy to announce that the 158th annual Victoria Highland Games will be going ahead in a few short weeks on Labour Day long weekend (September 4th and 5th, 2021). Although COVID-19 has restricted some events, the Van Isle Rovers will be hosting a 7s tournament for four codes: men's and ladies Gaelic football, hurling, and camogie, with teams from BC and Alberta in attendance.
This year, Gaelic games portion of the Victoria Highland Games is larger than ever before! The 7s tournament will be held on September 4th from 11am - 6pm on field 2A and 2B at the University of Victoria. This larger venue will allow for multiple games to be played simultaneously. Please click here for a map with the pitch location (circled in red).
UVic Saturday parking rates are $4.00/day on the outside of the ring road. There are restroom facilities at the pitch. Spectators are welcome (please bring your own chairs).
We would like to thank our committee members, sponsors, players, and community for helping to make this event happen.
