New Online Inter-County Player Transfer System

Since 2015, an application for an Inter-County transfer may be made online in a pilot scheme. If a player wishes to apply online, he should contact the Secretary of the Club he wishes to join and refer him/her to the transfers section of the official GAA website for information on the process. Benefits of using the new system include: * Quicker processing of applications. * Less chance of incorrect information being submitted. * Ability to check status of applications. * Easy access to transfer history. * Less administration work.
