How to watch the NBA Playoffs from Ireland
The Irish Rugby League (IRL) has confirmed that it is looking to bring its first official coverage of the NBA Finals to Ireland.
The game, which takes place on Sunday, will be broadcast live on the IRL’s Facebook page.
It will be the first Irish coverage of NBA finals.
“We are excited to bring our first ever NBA Finals coverage to Ireland as part of our efforts to provide an exciting experience for Irish fans,” IRL CEO Jim Collins said.
“It is a great opportunity for fans to watch live, exclusive coverage of their favourite NBA team in a completely new environment, which will include the best seats in the house.”
This will be Ireland’s first time being a part of a professional sport which was previously held by the UK and Ireland.
In 2012, the IRLS was able to broadcast the final of the Champions League between Spain and England.
The IRLS also have a strong presence in Ireland, having hosted the 2012 Rugby World Cup, a Rugby Championship and an exhibition Rugby World Series.
Irish Rugby League chairman, David Connolly, said the tournament was a great success for the league and the game.
“With an event like the NBA finals in Dublin, it will bring excitement to fans across the world,” Connolly said.
“It will give our fans an opportunity to be at home watching their favourite teams play for the first time in the United States.”
There is no fee to join the IRLL and fans can watch the event on Facebook for free.
