A busy summer is ahead with 8 Irish international teams competing in European Competitions. Levels of coverage will differ from competition to competition but we aim to try and help keep you as up to date as possible with all the action across the continent. We recommend you bookmark this page and check in regularly as content will change and update in advance of each team setting off to try and fulfil their European dreams!
Basketball Ireland have done a much better job in recent years with quicker results, news and features on the international teams. They are an essential follow to keep up to date on all things Irish so make sure you are following them on twitter and like them on Facebook .
The FIBA websites are normally an excellent source of information during the championships with live scoring on the games and comprehensive results, fixtures, game reports and stats. We will update the appropriate links in the section for each championship below.
The hashtag! Last summer the hashtag was #lockupgreen but this year it is #greenshoots – Simply type “#greenshoots” into the search on Twitter or Facebook and you will get a whole series of posts and tweets about Irish Basketball.

If you want to join in with the conversation simply add #greenshoots to the end of any Facebook post or tweet that relates to Irish Basketball that you put online!

Probably the best way to keep up to date with the squads is through their personal social media. Both teams will be taking over the official TCC snapchat ( CourtsideCo ) so that is a must add! We asked the teams and coaching staff for their social media that they are happy to share and they are listed below:
