Basketball Ireland confirm new season fixtures

The fixtures for the 2019/20 Basketball Ireland National League season have been announced today. The upcoming season will feature 12 Men’s Super League teams – including newly promoted Dublin sides, DBS Éanna and Abbey Seals Dublin Lions - while the Women’s Super League boasts 10 teams once more this year, with Maree taking the place of NUIG Mystics in the top flight.

The Men’s Division One will feature 13 teams from around the country, including the newly amalgamated team, Limerick Sport Eagles as LIT and UL Sport Eagles join forces for the year who will play alongside Limerick Celtics, lead once more this season by Tony Hehir.

The Women’s Division One will feature 12 teams, and will run across two conferences. This Division also includes two new teams, Tipperary Knights and Griffith College Templeogue who will face off against Limerick Celtics and the UL Huskies, who both return from last season. 

The opening weekend of the season for the men’s National League is September 20th/21st with the Women’s Super League tipping off the following weekend, September 28, with one of the big games of the weekend seeing the meeting of Courtyard Liffey Celtics and DCU Mercy in Leixlip. 


Looking ahead to the season, Basketball Ireland National League manager, Sheena Hubbard stated: “We are really looking forward to another exciting season in the National League this year and we expect that we will see another year of thrills, wins and upsets around the four divisions. We are also delighted to welcome two new clubs to the Women’s Division One and wish them the best of luck in their opening National League season.”
