Before going to see the Lions I had never seen a game of basketball in the UK. I go every year to the States and in all honesty I wasn't expecting much from a game in the UK. How very wrong I was....I booked my tickets via Ticketmaster and I called the lions on the day to see if I could buy an extra ticket on the door. Staff were really helpful and friendly. When I got to the Copper Box I was amazed by the basketball arena. The fans were so passionate and the game was action packed!! Entertainment at half time was actually better than my last trip to the states.

London Lions always make for a good evening/afternoon out. The announcer makes me laugh, there's a lot of athleticism on show and there's no better sport than basketball when the game is a close one. I try not to miss a game.

If I had to criticise, the speakers sound a bit ropey when they are playing music sometimes but that is about it!

I've seen two games with the lions at the box now and had an awesome time at both.
The team are playing really well with some exciting plays to watch. Both games were close with the lions hanging on to take the win.

Its a great atmosphere inside the arena but currently not amazingly attended so cheap to get top quality seats. I'd say right for anyone who likes basketball or wants to get into it. The crowd isn't hostile or aggressive like a football game can be sometimes so a great one to take young kids of nearly any age to.
