Season Fixtures Announced

The London Lions season gets under way on the road in Worcester before the home opener on 1st October vs Surrey Scorchers.


Your first chance to see the team will be at the O2 Arena in the British Basketball All Stars event on the 24th of September before the season proper starts.

Leicester Riders open their title defence against Manchester Giants when the season opens on Friday 29 September.

Leeds Force also have a tough first test on home soil when they entertain the Eagles and there are also two fine match-ups between Sharks and Scorchers, as well as the Wolves and Lions.

Opening weekend concludes with Tony Garbelotto tipping off a new era for Glasgow Rocks at home to Sharks, while Phoenix play their first game of the season against Wolves and there is also south-east derby between Lions and Scorchers.
