Hula Hoops Sponsors Irish Basketball National Cups
Hula Hoops has been announced as the new sponsor for Irish basketball’s National Cups events for 2015 and 2016.
More than 125 clubs from 16 counties are set to take part in this season’s events while the new National Intermediate Club Championships will give local clubs the chance to play on Ireland’s biggest basketball stage.
“There are ten national cups catering from U18 right up to our two senior flagship competitions, which will be televised live on TG4,” explained Basketball Ireland sponsorship and marketing manager JP Montgomery.
“The National Cups have been a platform for great Irish basketball players and great drama for over 30 years, but we feel that Hula Hoops coming on board marks a new chapter for knock-out basketball in Ireland,” he added.
Meanwhile, Niamh O’Dea, senior brand manager for Hula Hoops commented that the brand is delighted to be sponsoring the competitions.
“Basketball is one of the fastest growing and most exciting sports in Ireland, and Hula Hoops are the country's favourite take-home snack, which make this team a winning combination,” she said.
The draw for the Hula Hoops National Cups will take place on 23 September, with the first rounds in October and the finals set to be played in January in the National Basketball Arena.
