New Transfer System: The GAA Foireann system will be replacing the Player Transfer System (PTS) as well as the existing Sanction process. The attached letter, from Christian Phillips, GAA Club Administration Coordinator, explains the changes well. Some important points to note:   

  • Foireann to be used for  
  • Inter-County Transfers  
  • Club to Club transfers across Divisions 
  • Sanctions: USGAA, New York, Canadian & J1  
  • The player initiates all the above processes. 
  • All USGAA Clubs are already in Foireann and clubs can access immediately
  • Accounts will be accessed with, and notifications sent to the official GAA club secretary email.  
  • Passwords can be set using the ‘forgot password’ prompt.  
  • The above is for Hurling and Men’s Football only – LGFA and Camogie will continue to use paper for now. 
  • See attached table for deadlines and methods for each transfer type applicable to the USGAA
  • Individuals and clubs access: Foireann
  • Account creation and transfer request guides can be accessed here.



The USGAA Player and Social Member registration system is now open! 
There will be a how-to manual coming soon, but here is the video walkthrough in the meantime. 
Begin the process at usgaa.org/registration.
A few items to note:
  • If your club link is not yet live, please ask your club secretary/registrar to reach out to the Divisional Registrar for help claiming the account. 
  • If you are a dual player, complete the entire process for your primary club first. Then, return to the club links and select your secondary club to complete the process again. The system will NOT charge you for the second, identical membership in another club.
