Basketball Ireland EPC Chairperson, Dr Tim Rice, spoke on the upcoming fixtures:

“It’s exciting that the Ireland senior teams are now in the mix to compete at the highest level in Europe. These teams have worked hard to get to where they are, and it has paid off. While the women’s team have a year-long break after their first two fixtures, the men will be competing regularly over the coming months, which will really serve them well. It also gives Ireland fans plenty to look forward to! There’s a lot of work ahead for these teams and our organisation as a whole, but absolutely everyone is looking forward to the challenge”.
