Leicester Arena will play host to the Great Britain Senior Men’s team on November 24th as they face off against Greece in their first World Cup Qualification game.

Great Britain Men will come to Leicester Arena this November to host Greece as they being qualification rounds for the 2019 World Cup.

British Basketball Chief Executive Lisa Wainwright said, “One of the messages I have heard most often is that we need to stage more senior internationals in different parts of the country.”

“We’ve listened and we’re acting on that desire. This is another part of the jigsaw where the whole game works together and we look forward to working with our partners to put on these games”

Kevin Routledge, Chairman of Leicester Riders, said, “We are delighted to be staging such an important game for the Great Britain men in Leicester at our new Arena, and we are certain the atmosphere will be electric.”

“Everyone knows the quality of the Greek team, and no doubt they will draw their own fans from expats in the area. But we are also sure that Riders fans, and basketball fans from throughout the East Midlands, will want to create a noisy and winning environment for the Great Britain team.”

Tickets will be available via pre-sale that will begin on Wednesday 9th August at 9am with tickets going on General Sale at 9am on Monday 14th August.
