It's officially summer when the GAA Championship season kicks off – and we're getting closer to the race for Sam. This summer, play it your way from anywhere in the world by joining Ireland's fastest growing Fantasy Gaelic game.

Join your clubmates and friends and become involved in the most exciting competition in the GAA season. Decide on how you think the Championship will play out and pick your team to compete in the Sunday Independent league.

You can join the Sunday Independent league by selecting our league in the Dublin club selection. Top prizes can be won for the top player along with club prizes for teams at home and abroad – so this is your chance to show your GAA knowledge.

Teams can now be entered to challenge for tickets to the All Stars, weekend breaks at the Croke Park Hotel, Azzurri sportswear and many more individual and club prizes.

Not only do you compete within your own club (mini-leagues are ready for all clubs) but you also compete for your club in the overall club championship. The more players your club has playing, the more chance you have of becoming our 2014 Club Champions.

Teams of the week and player tables will be published throughout the summer with the overall champion being crowned on the third Sunday in September. More transfer windows, substitutions, man of the match bonus points and great prizes make the Fantasy Gaelic a must for all GAA fans.

With the first scoring games commencing next weekend, now is the time to register your team on www.fantasygaelic.ie. Simply select your 15 players (1 goalkeeper, 6 backs, 2 midfielders, 6 forwards) and a captain and your players collect points for you based on appearances, scores and performances in each game. Bonus points will be awarded for the man of the match so it's the best 15 you want to pick.

You can pick up to two players per team up to the All-Ireland semi-finals and scorers are key to all positions. There will be four transfer windows to make substitutions before the provincial, All-Ireland quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.

Join in the fun and play it your way.
