Leicester Riders European Basketball Sponsorship

Leicester Riders European Basketball Team

One of Morningside’s proudest partnerships is being the named sponsor of the 5,000 capacity Morningside Arena, Leicester; the home of the Leicester Riders Basketball Team.

The Leicester Riders were once again UK basketball champions in 2022, which is their 6th title, and means that they have now qualified to compete in the European Basketball Champions League.

To show our support, Morningside has sponsored the Riders’ European shirt, which they have proudly worn throughout their campaign on the continent alongside the likes of Romanian side CSO Voluntari.

The team is part of the Qualification Round, which is a three-round knockout format, with the winners of four separate tournaments achieving qualification for the BCL regular season. The teams were drawn against each other based on their BCL ranking, and unseeded teams were seeded according to their country ranking.

Talking about Morningside’s support for the team’s European ambitions, our Chairman Dr Nik Kotecha OBE DL, said: “As the named partner of the Morningside Arena, Leicester, we’re very proud of the huge success of the Leicester Riders, who call the venue their home.

“The Riders’ six British Basketball League titles have really put Leicester and the Morningside Arena on the map, so it’s great to also see them competing against the best teams in Europe, as part of this prestigious international basketball tournament.”

For Morningside our multi-year partnership with the Morningside Arena, Leicester, is so special because we donate the conference facilities for free to good causes, so they can raise much needed funds, as part of our agreement.

Dr Nik added: “From everyone at Morningside Pharmaceuticals, we would like to wish the Team the best of fortune in the European Champions League qualifiers and beyond.”
