With Scotland, Warwickshire, Lancashire, Hertfordshire, London and Yorkshire, the board makes up the British Provincial Board.

The Gloucestershire board oversees the Gaelic Football League and Championship of Gloucestershire. The County Board has been in existence since 1959 and in 2008 Gloucestershire won the British Junior Football Championship for the first time defeating Warwickshire in the final in Cardiff on a scoreline of 1-12 (15) to 0-06.
