More tickets to go on sale for National Cup finals as government restrictions ease

Basketball Ireland CEO John Feehan has welcomed this evening’s announcement by Taoiseach Micheál Martin and the Irish government to ease restrictions on sporting events, describing it as a “huge relief”.

Feehan said: “Basketball, like all sports, has been badly impacted by Covid-19. Indoor sports have had a very, very challenging time, basketball as the number one indoor sport has particularly difficult time over this period, so it’s a huge relief.”

“Although it’s short notice, the end to limits on spectators means that this weekend’s National Cup finals can now be at full capacity, which is a welcome boost for our showcase weekend of Irish domestic basketball, having originally been at 50% capacity. This is great news for supporters of the teams involved and basketball fans in general.”
