Unlike in soccer, where players from each team line up in their own half, Gaelic Football players start a game positioned on either side of the half, and pair themselves with an opposing team’s player. For example, the midfielders from each team will line up together at the centre-line of the field. 스포츠토토  The forwards will position themselves in front of the opposing team’s goal, and the fullbacks will line up beside the opposing team’s forwards. Defensively speaking, you are now paired with a player from the opposing team, and you will be “covering” that person for the duration of the game

The game begins with a jump ball between all four midfielders in the centre.

The ball may be held in the hands, however if the ball is on the ground, player must scooped the ball up into the hands by the foot

Players are given only four seconds or four steps to advance the ball.

Players can pass the ball by kicking it, or by striking it with one hand while holding the ball in the other (a hand-pass). The ball may not be thrown.

After four steps, the player may bounce the ball (this bounce is called a “hop”) and take four more steps, kick-pass the ball or hand-pass the ball.

If the player chooses to take four steps after bouncing, they must kick the ball back to themselves (called a solo) after the 8 steps, creating a sequence of four steps-bounce-four steps-solo-four steps-bounce-four steps-solo. etc.

History of Gaelic football 

Gaelic football and hurling continued throughout the centuries, gaining popularity and becoming more complex and organised as the years passed. When the British empire took over the ruling of Ireland after the feudal system was abolished, they cracked down on all things native such as music, dancing, language, religion and of course, sport. Eventually in the latter half of the 18th century a revival of all things Irish sparked up along with the beginnings of rebellion and a push towards independence. All the while hurling and gaelic football were gaining popularity, with matches drawing bigger crowds every year and more and more people calling for an official regulatory body to be set up so that everyone could play from one rulebook. At this stage, there were many variations in the rules of the game depending on what part of the country you were in, which often led to blows when teams from different regions played against each other.

It was a man named Michael Cusack who transformed hurling and gaelic football from the localised, informal and sometimes erratic games they were then into the all powerful national sports they are today. He observed that the sports were limited to the middle and upper classes, had inconsistent rules throughout the country, and most importantly, they could potentially be a very influential aspect of the independence movement if they were made into unified and governed sports. Luckily, he was a journalist by trade and so had a good deal of leverage when it came to gaining support and followers for his cause. In October 1884 he wrote and article with the title ‘A Word about Irish Athletics’, which was published in the United Ireland and The Irishman, both widely read publications. Based on the positive feedback from this article, he submitted a signed letter the next week announcing the first ever meeting of the ‘Gaelic Athletic Association for the Preservation and Cultivation of National Pastimes’.
