The Leicester Riders are pleased to announce that they have teamed up with Sandicliffe for the 2015/16 season.
Keep an eye out for the names and shirt numbers of Drew Sullivan (#8), Italian guard Tyler Bernardini (#4) and forward Anthony Rowe (#33) as they travel around Leicestershire. The three Riders stars will drive a Ford C-Max, a Ford Focus and a Ford Ecosport respectively as part of the new agreement.
Leicester Riders Managing Director, Russell Levenston, is excited for the agreement with Sandicliffe to continue. “It has been amazing to work with Sandicliffe over the last year. The support they give to the players and our community programme has helped us take strides forwards over the last season and the support of the staff throughout the year has been phenomenal.
“We are excited to continue to work with such good people within an excellent company to help drive us forwards.”
Nigel Falkiner, Sandicliffe Head of Marketing, said: “The Riders have been one of the leading forces in British basketball over the last few seasons and we’re delighted to partner with our local club as they aim to win this year’s title.
“Sandicliffe have long been a huge supporter of local sport and we look forward to cheering on the Riders to more success.”
The team will be moving into a brand new home at the Leicester Community Sports Arena in the new year and start the new season on 26th September with a home match against Midlands rivals the Worcester Wolves.
“As well as three Riders stars driving new Ford cars for the season, we’ve also agreed to provide a van to the Riders’ Community Team for the 2015/16 season,” added Mr Falkiner from Sandicliffe, the new and used Ford experts. “They do brilliant work across the East Midlands with individuals, schools and clubs and we’re pleased to be able to help them continue their invaluable work.”
“With the new season just around the corner and the team all set to move to a brand new home we hope that it can be another successful season for Leicester basketball.”
