Galway United FC are running a MONSTER Christmas Raffle to raise funds for our Underage Academy. The draw takes place on December 29th. Tickets can be bought in person or online –

2021 was the most successful season ever for our Academy teams, with our U14s winning their National League and our U17s narrowly losing in the Mark Farren Cup Final. Our U15s and U19s teams also had very strong seasons. We are raising funds to give the young players coming through the best possible chance to make football a career.

Speaking to the GUFC media team, Ruairi Guckian (GUFC Board Member) said, 

“Running an Underage Football Academy with nearly 100 players isn’t cheap. There are alot of costs involved with travel, food and training facilities to name just a few. We are looking for parents of Academy players and supporters of the club to help sell a book of tickets. We have some amazing prizes in the raffle, with top prize being a 5 Star holiday in Greece – thanks to our Principal Club Partners – The Comer Brothers.”



Niall Hartigan, Raffle Committee Member said, 

“Because the funds raised go directly to enhancing our local League of Ireland club. Funding the Academy provides the platform for current and future generations of Galway children to train and compete against the nations best players on a regular basis without having to leave the comfort of their own home. It allows them to flourish and develop in a safe and encouraging environment where everyone at the club only wants the best for them and to see them succeed at the highest level.”


We are looking for parents and supporters to help sell a book of raffle tickets. Each book has 10 tickets and each ticket is €10. You can purchase your raffle tickets through our online shop :
