South Dublin County Tourism and South Dublin County Council have appointed Milenio Sports Management to manage and deliver 'The Gathering' 2013 International Football Tournament. The tournament will take place in South County Dublin next year involving 8 club teams from USA, UK and Europe who will compete over seven days to become the inaugural winners of the trophy, the semi finals and final of which will be held at Tallaght Stadium Dublin, the home of Ireland's most successful football Team - Shamrock Rovers F.C 

Throughout 2013 Ireland will open its arms to hundreds and thousands of families and friends from all over the world inviting them to home to gathering in villlages, towns and cities. The South Dublin International Football Tournament will form part of the overall strategy of getting Ireland's global diaspora home (and contributing to the local economy) while enjoying a first class International tournament and experiencing the best of local hospitality and tourism at the same time.

The Gathering Ireland is not one single event. It’s an exciting year-long celebration of Ireland, its people and all that is great about its connections, both at home and abroad. The Gathering Ireland invites anyone who has a link to Ireland or just a love of the country, to come to Ireland for a series of events throughout 2013.

The Gathering Ireland was launched by the Irish Prime Minister and Minister for Tourism in May 2012 and is being supported by Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland. It promises to be the biggest tourism initiative ever staged in Ireland.

The Football Tournament was launched today in South Dublin County Council, County Hall, Tallaght by Michael Ring TD the Irish Minister of State, at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.
