Ireland U20 Men prepare for European Championships this week


The Ireland Under 20 Men's basketball team will depart from Dublin Airport to Oradea, Romania on Thursday of this week in advance of the FIBA U20 Men’s European Championship Division B which tip off on Friday, July 14th.


The Under 20 teams have been divided into four groups, with Ireland playing in Group D alongside Moldova, Portugal, Kosovo, Croatia and Hungary.

The first three days of the Championships will see them play Moldova, Portugal and Kosovo on Friday, July 14th, Saturday, July 15th and Sunday, July 16th respectively before earning a well-deserved rest day ahead of their remaining games.


Looking forward to the championships, Under 20 Men’s Head Coach, Dave Baker stated: “Preparation has been jammed with exams and players finishing club and college schedules and seasons, but we have been coming together well in the past few weeks with the guys putting in serious work along the way. We’re under no illusions about how difficult the task ahead will be, but we intend on giving it everything we have and doing Ireland proud.”
