Shake Shack offering basketball supporters chance to win a holiday to the Big Apple

Fans attending the London Lions’ two home games this weekend could earn a chance to win a holiday to New York, all thanks to the Shake Shack restaurant at Westfield Stratford City.

One lucky supporter can win a trip for two to the Big Apple, including flights, transfers, hotel stay (two nights) as well as dinner at the original Shack in Madison Square Park.

The Lions host Worcester Wolves on Friday (tip-off at 7.30pm) before they entertain Newcastle Eagles on Sunday (tip-off at 4pm), with both games taking place at the Copper Box in the Olympic Park.

As part of a competition that has been running since last month, fans can go to the Shake Shack page of the programme to see if it is one of four for each game that features a green burger icon.

If it does, the lucky spectator will be taken onto the court to shoot for Shack during the game against the Wolves and earn a place in the grand final, which takes places against the Eagles.

There will also be two fast track passes in the programme for Sunday’s game against Newcastle that will see the supporters straight into the final.

The competition is the latest in a series of link-ups between the Lions and Shake Shack, and it appears the club are enjoying the relationship.

“This is such terrific fun”, said Lions CEO Vince Macaulay. “Working with a partner like Shake Shack has really engaged our community from local youth basketball sessions to this shoot for Shack home game series. I’m excited and I don’t even get a chance to shoot!”
