TG4 will be the home of Irish international basketball, with home and away fixtures in the FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2025 Qualifiers and FIBA Basketball World Cup European Pre-Qualifiers shown live.

Basketball Ireland CEO, John Feehan, said: “We’re delighted to announce this broadcast partnership with TG4, it extends and strengthens the long-running relationship we have. TG4 have significantly grown their coverage of Irish basketball over the last number of years, both internationally and domestically, and we look forward to working side-by-side with them over the next two years, as we continue the upward trajectory of the sport.”

Rónán O’Coisdealbha, TG4 Head of Sport, added: “We’ve been on a wonderful journey with the Irish international basketball team since they returned to FIBA EuroBasket level in 2021 and this new two-year agreement rubberstamps our commitment to our men’s and women’s teams. TG4 has also been long-term broadcasters of the National Cup and we’re excited to show the National League finals once again, having broadcast them for the first time last season. Next week’s ‘Super Sunday’ double header promises to be an exciting afternoon of action at the National Basketball Arena.”
