Irish domestic basketball will have a brand new look for the 2023/24 National League season, with new logos for the InsureMyVan.ie Super League, MissQuote.ie Super League, InsureMyVan.ie Division 1 and MissQuote.ie Division 1.
The new logos incorporate the Basketball Ireland brand through a half-court illustration, alongside competition title sponsors InsureMyVan.ie and MissQuote.ie.
The new look and the fixtures for the new season were launched this morning at a media and content session that was high on energy and a good marker for the year ahead.
Ryan Byrne and Morgan Treacy from Inpho.ie were set up in two different locations and Nathaniel Cope and Robbie Fahy from Basketball Ireland were hustling in players from all 51 clubs to get a variety of shots that will be used throughout the coming months.
There were areas for recording video content that can be used across all social media from Insta to TikTok and which will also be appearing in stings for the Swish scoring app and the Basketball Ireland live streaming channel.
There is a great sense of community across the sport and this was a rare enough opportunity for players, coaches and others to come together.
If the energy in the Arena is matched even if only in part when the season gets underway then it will be worth watching.
“We have been working on this branding of our top tier domestic leagues for a number of months and we are delighted with the end result,” said Basketball Ireland CEO John Feehan.
“The new logos add a strong visual presence for our Super League and Division 1 competitions. It’s the logical next step, as the visibility and prominence around our leagues continues to grow, following last year’s launch of basketballireland.tv and digitising the sport through NBN23’s Swish All Hoops app.”
“This is the third year of our sponsorship of the InsureMyVan.ie Super League and Division 1 and MissQuote.ie Super League and Division 1 and we’re delighted to see the next evolution of our partnership with Basketball Ireland through these new logos,” added CFM CEO, Jonathan Hehir.
“The league goes from strength-to-strength and we look forward to being part of its continued growth.”
The 2023/24 season starts on September 23rd, when defending MissQuote.ie Super League champions The Address UCC Glanmire host Waterford Wildcats at 3pm, with four more MissQuote.ie Super League fixtures taking place that weekend. A week later all four divisions are in action, with defending InsureMyVan.ie Super League champions Irish Guide Dogs Ballincollig @MTU facing Cork rivals Energywise Ireland Neptune at their new home venue, MTU Arena, on September 30th at 4pm.
