Check out what past teams have said about G.I.F.T: 

“We are honored to be traveling abroad to open our 2023 season, which will be an invaluable experience for our student-athletes to explore a new culture and engage in all that Ireland has to offer,” commented Larry Baggitt ‘H18, Seton Hall Prep Director of Athletics. “We are impressed by not only the level of competition, but the educational opportunities that the Global Ireland Football Tournament provides. I also look forward to our program alumni joining and supporting our team for this incredible opportunity.” 

“All I know is that we took, with your help, 140 Hamilton High School students to Ireland and back, and they had the time of their lives! They continue to talk about the experience and will do so for years. It was nice to return home and get a win just days after GIFT. Thanks for all you did for our kids and school.” Dick Baniszewski, Hamilton High School Arizona, Director of Athletics.
