Buy tickets now for the BBL Cup Final at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham on 17th January 2016.
Esh Group Eagles Newcastle and Leicester Riders will face off in early January in a mouthwatering clash for the coveted British Basketball League (BBL) Cup silverware.
The Eagles will go in to the game as favourites, following on from last season's clean sweep of honours with an unbeaten start to the season. With a team boasting Fab Flournoy, the most successful coach in BBL History, last season's Most Valuable Player Charles Smith along with star guards Rahmon Fletcher and Joe Chapman, it is clear why they carry the favourites badge.
The Riders however have also enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, picking up only one defeat so far and they will feel confident of repeating their 2014 Cup Final success against an Eagles team boasting many of the same players they faced that day. Back in 2014 the Riders were inspired by GB Captain Drew Sullivan, and they will be delighted to draw on his services again as he goes up against his old team.
Add in to the mix flamboyant Head Coach Rob Paternostro, exciting big man TrayVonn Wright and young British stars Jamell Anderson and Conner Washington and you have a team capable of beating the Eagles to the title.
Be there as the teams lock horns for the third time in recent Cup Final history as they go head-to-head on Sunday 17th January at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham (formerly the National Indoor Arena) for the first piece of silverware of the season.
Also taking place on the day is the Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL) Trophy Final which pits two of the top UK Women’s teams against each other in a winner takes all encounter.
