Tournaments :

    • Brittany Championship :

The schedule of the 2008-2009 season has yet to be released. The championship consists in four tournaments (five if Vannes has a complete team and hold a tournament this season). In each leg, the four or five Breton teams (Brest, Liffré, Nantes, Rennes and Vannes) compete in a round robin format (6 or 10 games) and a ranking is made at the end of the day. Teams are awarded points based on their ranking (25, 20, 16, 14, 10 respectively). At the end of the 4 or 5 legs, the total number of points determines the Brittany Champion.

    • Euroleague 2008 & 2009 :

The final rounds of Euroleague 2008 are played between July and November. The team won’t make the trip to Munich (July 26th) and Budapest (September 13th) though we’ll play in Rennes on October 11th, and maybe in Maastricht on November 8th.
Euorleague is made of two phases. The first one is a regional one, held from March to June. Three tournaments are held in the France + Anglo Norman Islands area. After the three tournaments, the two best teams are qualified for the final rounds of Euroleague, while the other teams are invited to play the Shield competition against the other teams that did not qualify for Euroleague.

    • Monterfil Challenge & Beach Gaelic 2009 :

Both these tournaments should be held in June 2009. Nantes will play in both and organize the Beach Gaelic tournament once again. The exact dates are yet to be defined.
