London Lions will mark the Armistice Centenary with a minute's silence before their BBL Cup quarter-final against Worcester this weekend.

The current BBL leaders welcome the Wolves to the Copper Box Arena on Sunday (November 18), with the action getting underway at 4pm.

And with this match being the club’s nearest fixture to Remembrance weekend, they will use it to pay respect to the servicemen and women who have given their lives in combat.

The club will ask spectators to observe a minute’s silence prior to tip-off – a silence which will begin and end with the referee’s whistle.

Also, veterans, serving soldiers and cadets are entitled to a free ticket to this weekend’s match and eligible supporters can claim their complimentary ticket at the Box Office by producing appropriate ID.

To reserve the ticket just email office@thelondonlions.com and quote ‘Troops’.

Accompanying friends and family can purchase tickets for just £10 from the Box Office.

Tickets can also be acquired online via Tickets for Troops to serving members of HM Armed Forces or those who have been medically discharged from the Forces since the commencement of military action in Afghanistan in 2001.

Serving members include both Regulars and Reserves. London Lions have been supporting Tickets 4 Troops now for over five years.
