On Saturday 27th August 2016, Great Britain Men’s Basketball team take on the famous ‘Orange Lions’ of the Netherlands at the newly built National Basketball Performance Centre at Belle Vue Sports Village. Tip off time 7pm. This is an international friendly prior to the Fiba Eurobasket qualifiers which are being played at the Copperbox in September.
Without doubt the biggest basketball event in the UK is the Championship Weekend at the NIA Birmingham. This was a 4 team tournament following the Play-offs. There would be 2 semi-finals on Saturday night followed by the Championship Game which would close out the season. Lately this has been just a one night affair with the semi-finals as a two-legged affair.
