The Fenway Hurling Classic is back next month

The AIG Fenway Hurling Classic was expanded to four teams with Dublin and Galway set to be joined by Clare and Tipperary at Boston's Fenway Park on November 19

The Dubs and the reigning All-Ireland champions clashed at Boston's home of baseball back in 2015 in the Super 11s format of the game.

And they will face off-once more with their game to be followed by a clash between Clare and Tipperary.

The winners of both games will meet in a deciding game for a trophy which is currently being commissioned by the GAA and GPA.  All three games will be broadcast live by TG4.

The games will once again take place under the Super 11s rules which were specifically designed by the GAA and GPA to allow hurling be played in stadiums around the world which may not be big enough to accommodate a full size GAA pitch.

The 2015 game was watched by 28,000 in Fenway with the game notable for a skirmish that erupted between the sides.

It was the first hurling match played there in 61 years.

“The strong demand and positive response to the inaugural AIG Fenway Hurling Classic in 2015 prompted us to make this year’s event even bigger and better,” said Fenway Sports Management Managing Director Mark Lev.

“The game’s exciting combination of speed, skill, constant action and scoring has really resonated with fans. We’re excited to announce the addition of a third match and the introduction of the new tournament format, which will result in one team hoisting our inaugural trophy.

"This will be a can’t-miss day on the New England sports calendar and we’re grateful to partners AIG, the GPA and GAA for enabling us to add yet another dynamic event to an already compelling off-season line-up at Fenway Park.”

“Along with the championship trophy, there will be an intense Irish pride for teams and counties competing in the championship match,” said GPA Chief Executive Officer Dermot Earley. “The new tournament format is going to bring the best out of a fierce group of competitors. It will be an unforgettable day for fans, players and the sport of hurling as a whole.”
