Admission is free and doors will open at 7 p.m. The team will be commemorated at 8 p.m. and the festivities will go on until midnight.
Donar defeated Leiden 73 to 66 in the 4thgame of the 7 game playoffs: Donar won all four of the games. This is the third year in a row that Donar has won the national championship, and the team defeated their semi-final opponents Rotterdam in a clean sweep.
In the sweltering 5 May Hall, both teams gave it their all on Tuesday. Leiden came back from a 25 point deficit and only trailed by 5 points in the fourth quarter, but Donar took the momentum back just in time and finished the match in style.
