Tickets & Travel: Meet the players, home ticket deals, Bristol & Leicester travel

Groupon deals for the opening three home games against Surrey Scorchers, Manchester Giants and Leeds Force and the best train fares for the games at Bristol Flyers and Leicester Riders are now available.

The London Lions have announced a barbecue at Holiday Inn Stratford to meet the players on Wednesday. You only have until this Monday to book your ticket (£15).

The first chance to see the new team in action is less than a week away in the friendly against Glasgow Rocks at UEL SportsDock before the All-Stars Championship next Sunday.

Surrey Scorchers (01/10/17), Manchester Giants (06/10/17), Leeds Force (15/10/17)

Tickets for the two opening home games of the league season and the Cup game against Leeds Force at the Copper Box Arena are available on Groupon for £9.99 adults / £24.99 family.

London Lions @ Bristol Flyers (17/11/17)

Advance train fares are now available for the Lions’ game at the SGS Wise Arena on Friday 17 November (19:30 tip-off). The 15:15 from London Paddington, currently £17.50, arrives at Bristol Parkway at 16:38 in plenty of time for the game. Later in the afternoon is £43.50.

The last train home is at 22:02, for £17.50 and arriving in Paddington at 23:38, which should allow just enough time unless the game is delayed for any reason or goes to overtime. Alternatively, return the next day, again for £17.50 single.

London Lions @ Leicester Riders (08/12/17)

The game at the Leicester Arena is an evening tip-off at 19:30 but go early at 13:15 from St Pancras, just over an hour direct, for £15.50. Tickets later in the afternoon are a little more expensive.

Again, after the game, the last train can just about be caught providing the game finishes on time. It leaves at 21:58, arriving in St Pancras at 23:38, just £15.50. Otherwise, return the next day for the same price. Super off-peak returns are available for £60.50.

BBL venue guides are being updated ready for the new season and information on both of the above arenas can be found via the respective links. Tickets & travel details for the opening games of the season have already been provided – check for latest prices.
