The fastest sport in the world, Irish hurling, comes to the home of the New York Mets this November for the 2019 New York Hurling Classic at Citi Field.
GAA fans get ready: the Irish sport of hurling is heading to Queens for the New York Hurling Classic with a four-team tournament on Saturday, November 16.
Building off the highly-successful U.S. events at Fenway Park in 2015, 2017 and 2018, a three-game tournament will be played with four counties competing for the Players Champions Cup, which was introduced at the 2017 event.
Four Irish senior hurling teams – newly-crowned All-Ireland champs Tipperary, runner-up Kilkenny, Wexford, and Limerick – will take part in a three-game tournament, with each of the games running 40 minutes in duration. Limerick will defend the Players Champions Cup, having won the 2018 Fenway Hurling Classic with a 38-30 victory over Cork.
Tickets for the New York Hurling Classic go on sale Wednesday, August 28 at 10:00 a.m. at www.mets.com/hurling.
