With a record-breaking crowd of close to 6,000 spectators attending the 2022 British Basketball League Trophy Finals at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena earlier this year, the British Basketball League (BBL) are delighted to confirm the WBBL/BBL Trophy Finals will be returning to Scotland for next year’s Finals, with tickets available via pre-sale on 17th August.
The home of the Trophy Finals since the 2012-13 season, Sunday 26th March 2023 is the date that has been selected for the showpiece event to return next season, when memories of last year’s epic Men’s and Women’s finals will surely still be vivid in the memory of those who roared on the teams.
The Emirates Arena played host to two of the most remarkable stories of the 2021/22 season as Cheshire Phoenix upset the London Lions to win the Men’s final, whereas the Lions’ Women’s side brushed aside the formidable Sevenoaks Suns on their way to an undefeated domestic season.
As well as the first-class basketball action being showcased for fans on the court, supporters attending the Trophy Finals last year were treated to some incredible entertainment acts too, including the high-flying acrobatic Barjots Dunkers and the super talented BBL Dance Crew.
British Basketball League Chief Operating Officer Andy Webb said:
“We are very excited to be returning to Glasgow for the British Basketball Trophy Finals in 2023. The 2022 British Basketball Finals were extraordinarily successful events, and we cannot wait for the action to resume in the 2022-23 season so we can provide more incredible action for the British Basketball community to enjoy.”
With demand for British Basketball at fever pitch, tickets for the 2023 Trophy Finals are set for pre-sale on 17th August, with tickets available on general sale from 24th August.
