The Amateur Basketball Association of Ireland was created in 1945, and in 1971 set up the National League. the modern era began in 1980 when the ABAI changed its name to the Irish Basketball Association (IBBA) and sanctioned the introduction of paid professional imports from America. In 1991 the First and Second Divisions were merged into One Division with two conferences, which in 1993 were split again into a Super League (First Level) and Division 1 (Second Level). They were again merged in 1998 and split once again in 2001. The Association rebranded in 2003 as Basketball Ireland and in 2013 the Super League was rebranded the Premier League for three seasons, reverting back to the name Super League in 2016. [29]

This document provides an Overview of the Super League of the Basketball Ireland Men’s National League from 2003 to 2013, which was First Level of Men’s Basketball in Ireland, and was a period when the League reverted to a Two Conference format, with each team playing Home & Away against teams in their own conference, and once against teams in the other conference, following which a series of Playoffs decided the National Champions.

In 2013, with revelations that Basketball Ireland was €1.4 Million in debt following the economic collapse in Ireland at that time, it was decided that the League was in need of restructuring in order to fix it and a Single Division, playing Home & Way was again re-introduced, with the League Rebranded as the Premier League.
