Padova Gaelic Football (Padova GFC), is a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Club based in Padua, Northeastern Italy. The club plays Gaelic Football, but there are plans to extend its activity to Australian Rules Football, and some Gaelic Handball matches have been played. The club, founded in June 2012, is the second oldest Gaelic Football club in Italy after Ascaro Rovigo GFC, from the neighbouring town of Rovigo, against which "The Paddies" (as they are called by their fans), contest twice a year the "Adige Cup", once in Padua and once in Rovigo: the first "Adige Cup" was the first Gaelic Football match ever played in Italy. It plays in the Swiss/Italy Championship along with Rovigo and the third Italian Gaelic Football team, Rome, and it took part to the European finals played in Athlone, Ireland, in 2013. The club's colours are red and white.
