The Airsoft Underground

The Airsoft Underground.


Bringing Irish Airsoft to The Next Level.


We would like to announce a new venture which will bring a new level to the sport of airsoft in Ireland.


Announcing


“The Airsoft Underground”.

Simply The Airsoft Underground is a new group whose aim is to bring you airsoft where you want to play it. We are still working on a lot of finer points.

Q. Ever been heading home from work or school and seen a place you thought might be great for airsoft and never done anything about it? What can you do?
A. Contact The Airsoft Underground.
The Airsoft Underground will attempt to contact the owner of the property and attempt to strike a deal in relation to allowing a game of airsoft to be played on their property. We will survey the property to ensure it is safe and in conjunction with a promotions company will organise the games and insurance.

Q. What’s in it for you?
A. The most amazing game of airsoft you have ever played. If you bring a property to us and if we can organise the property for an airsoft game, you and 5 of your mates can play free.
Through a network of contacts, we have already sourced 4 locations around the country that will bring Irish Airsoft to the forefront. We are actively working on these locations and have one secured and should be ready to announce it as our first venue shortly.

Q. What do I do now?
A. Send us a PM with information about the site. The address, Sat Nav, a photo, contact details for the owner (if you know it) and of course your name and phone number. Any information you have on the location. We will contact you as soon as possible.

We are The Airsoft Underground.
We are first and foremost, Airsofter’s.

Have you given any consideration to the CJA 2009's requirement of Airsoft venues to be approved (licensed) by the district superintendent?

Or the fact that you need a change of use from the local authority and public liability insurance on land for public use?

An idea like this could do a lot of harm.

Yes we have. No venue will be used without following correct procedure and this includes making contact with all local authorities.

So let me get this right ,

you want people to go out scout locations regardless of where they are

so you /company can go approach the landowners to set up a skirmish site on there land,

for some kind of super airsoft venture never seen before

so whats your experiances running airsoft sites

playing airsoft

good luck, i know how hard it is to run a normal site, let alone moving the location around between location, will be interesting to see how this works out

i know this structure has worked in the uk but of course the rules are a little different over there

This why we will need to treat each venue as a seperate entity. All home work will be done on each location. We have all our insurance in place and everthing will be done legally and above board .

You can't legally do once off airsoft events in this country though, there is an exemption clause in the national development plan 2001 for local events but airsoft isn't covered in it (I checked lol).

Interesting theory.,
Is the plan for it to be a one off game or to use the site permanently?

What assurances do players get that they are insured onsite? who are you using for insurance etc.

Do you have any experience running a site, or have you been involved in any previously?

I like the idea of it, but id need a bit of convincing that it would all be above board with the cops and insurance.,

How do you plan on getting around the change of use issue? Im just curious, mainly because there is no clause in Irish law that covers airsoft for such an event.
