Date: 17th March, 2020

Following Government advice regarding large public gatherings as part of the latest national measures to combat Covid-19, the BBL has taken the decision to postpone the 2019/20 season indefinitely, until it is deemed safe to resume.

If and when the season resumes, fixture dates for games will be advised. The BBL will continuously monitor the situation, in consultation with the Government, and subject to their advice, will provide updates as appropriate.

It remains the intention that the Playoff Final at the O2 Arena will be culmination of the season.

At present we have no further information available, and are currently limited in our ability to respond to emails or calls regarding ticketing information. Please do not call the ticket office for information on individual cases. Information on refunds, if appropriate, will follow later. We will provide further updates as they become available.

It was decided that the WBBL season 2019/20 will be cancelled with immediate effect.

We very much appreciate your support to Leicester Riders and the BBL during these very difficult times.

We would like to thank our supporters and sponsors for their continued patience, understanding and support.

We’d also like to thank all of our playing, coaching and club staff who have worked tirelessly this season to represent our great club in the best way possible.

Please stay safe, from all at Leicester Riders.
