The 2019 Inter Games Football Tournament was an association football tournament which was held between 15 and 22 June 2019 in Anglesey, Wales. It was organised due to the hosts of the 2019 Island Games, Gibraltar being unable to run a tournament due to lack of pitches.[1] As football is one of the most popular sports at the games it was decided to hold the matches elsewhere, albeit with the results not officially part of the Island Games history.[2]

It was announced on 1 May 2018 that the Welsh island had been chosen as the preferred venue to host. In August of that year 12 clubs put forward their names to hold matches and the draw for both the men's and women's competitions were made on 19 November by Wayne Hennessey and Osian Roberts.[3] The sponsors of the games were Anglesey based Huws Gray builders merchants.[4]

Men's[edit]

The men's tournament will start as a group Round-robin tournament followed by knock out games.

Ranking of second-placed teams[edit]

Joining the three group winners in the semi-finals, the final semi-final slot is awarded to the best-ranked runner-up. As Group A contained one more team than the other groups, the result of the Group A runner-up against the Group A fourth-placed team is not taken into consideration. This was Jersey's 7–0 win over the Western Isles.
