Dublin’s Golden Cup 2020 is cancelled!
APRIL 2020 – DGC 2020 is cancelled
Unfortunately, much like many tournaments before us and possibly many after us, we have come to the decision to cancel Dublin’s Golden Cup 2020. We have been wondering if we should wait a little bit longer to see if things get better but we feel like now is the best time to make the decision and cancel the tournament.
Naturally we are disappointed given the efforts we have put in and the plans we have made. We are sad that the list of 24 teams we had just finalised cannot come and put on the show we were expecting and we know many of you had made travel plans already. However, all that disappointment is relative to what is happening around us and we want our visitors, our staff, our local players and all the other people involved in our event to be safe. We can’t guarantee that at the moment so we are going to cancel the event and come back stronger, bigger and better in August 2021.
As always we will be looking at the first weekend of the month which will be the 7th and 8th in 2021 so please mark it in that calendar and most importantly, stay safe.
Big love from TDs Marko, Darron & Shane and the whole DGC 2020 Crew
