New BBL Champs London Lions team up with Obelizk

THE COPPER BOX ARENA was set alight last weekend as fans welcomed London’s top basketball team the London Lions – who are the new holders of the BBL Championship title. It was the first championship for the Lions, clinched after the London team beat Esh Group Eagles of Newcastle earlier in the week.

Emotional fans in the Copper Box watched as the Lion’s queued up to collect their winners’ medals before ending the season with a home game against Leicester Riders. The emotion came not only from seeing the Lions clinch their first championship but also from the scale of their victory: it’s the first time a London Club has won the title in 21 years and seven years since the title was won by a Club other than Newcastle or Leicester.

Vincent Macaulay, CEO and Head Coach, said, “I feel honoured to have led London basketball back to the top of the tree. My Coaching team, my club staff, my team have all been brilliant – but what’s awesome is our hard core fans who have backed us up and down the country, this is for you. A huge thank you to our partners GLL, who have supported us every step of the way on our journey in London. We wouldn’t be here now without you.”

The Lions are playing at the Copper Box on Bank Holiday Monday. For tickets, go to:

Obelizk and the Lions – sharing an image of strength and success

The London Lions basketball team have announced that Obelizk is to become their luxury accessories sponsor. Obelizk has been going since 2016 and specialises in high quality men’s jewellery which smartens up every form of attire – from business dress to smart casual wear.

Lolly Marlborough, London Lions Marketing Director, said, “We are excited to welcome Obelizk as our official luxury accessories sponsor. They make accessories for men who want to stand out from the crowd rather than blend into the background – which fits the ethos of London Lions basketball players. Their Lions jewellery series is impressive and contemporary, making it a relevant and cool fit for the London Lions. We look forward to a fruitful longstanding partnership.”

Nathan Evans, co-owner of Obelizk, said, “It is a pleasure to sponsor London Lions, the UK’s BBL League Champions 2019, with whom we share common values. Ambition, passion, and the ability to hustle define Obelizk. London Lions are the real deal and we are happy to join the strong sponsors backing the team!”
