To members and friends of UCD Marian
After last year's memorable Championship season, the new SuperLeague season is almost upon us.
This year will be a very special one for UCD Marian as we celebrate 70 years of basketball at UCD and the 50th anniversary of the founding of Marian Basketball Club in 1968/69.
There will be a number of events over the coming season to celebrate these important milestones.
The first event is a fund-raising anniversary dinner which will honour the SuperLeague win and will raise funds for this season's programme.
The day will begin with the first home game of the season which will take place at Belfield at 4pm on Saturday 29th September. After the game there will be a drinks reception at 7pm at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire with dinner at 8pm
Individual tickets are available at €85. They can be bought on the UCD Marian Facebook page by clicking the Eventbrite link. https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/ucd-marian-anniversary-dinner-tickets-49171502287
We encourage as many members and friends as possible to come along to the game and/or the dinner to get the anniversary celebrations off to a great start
