What is Gaelic Hurling & Hurling Betting Guide
Gaelic Hurling is one of Ireland’s native Gaelic games, played by two teams of 15 players. There are similarities between Gaelic hurling and Gaelic football, but they are not the same sports.
Hurling is played with an ash wood stick (a hurley) and a small ball (a sliotar). The objective of hurling is for players to hit the ball over the crossbar for one point or under the crossbar and into the net for three points.
Physically demanding and fast-paced, hurling is a brilliant sport, as it delivers high-scoring games and lots of action. You can bet on all the major hurling events and teams at Stake.com , including the All-Ireland Hurling Championships and the National Hurling League.
