Leicester Riders


Leicester Riders

Leicester Riders are the city's professional basketball club, playing in the British Basketball League (BBL).

Founded in 1967, the Leicester Riders are the oldest professional club in British basketball. Their long history has been full of success; the Riders are three-time BBL Cup winners, two-time BBL Champions and BBL play-off winners and also have a BBL trophy in their collection.

In January 2016 the Riders moved to a new home in the Morningside Arena. The venue has a capacity of up to 3,000 (2,400 seated) and the team made themselves at home straight away with an immediate run of victories to claim the BBL trophy in the 2015/16 season.

Morningside Arena is a fantastic place to be on a Riders game night. If you've never experienced Basketball before, now is the time to get involved! The family atmosphere makes it a great experience for all ages! The club runs an extensive community and educational programme which encourages youngsters to get involved in the game, including basketball camps held throughout the year.
