For two teenage basketball teams in a small Irish coastal town, better days are coming after they have secured the sponsorship of the American supermodel, the BBC reported on Friday.

On the eve of the new season, Emily Ratajkowski heeded pleas from the Bantry Basketball Club in Cork County, where 15-year-olds and 16-year-olds play, to buy them new equipment.

Her help ignited our Snapchat group, said, coach Pat Curran.

He added that the family of the supermodel, actress, and activist has long been rooted in Bantry.

The 30-year-old's parents have a house in that town, and her father John played for a basketball club 20 years ago, Pat told the BBC.
