Following a sell-out event at the Copper Box Arena back in April, the Big Ballers are back to defend their title against London Lions, London’s Professional Basketball Team.

This is the ultimate grudge game with both teams having a lot to prove!

When the teams clashed back in April the Ball brothers, Lamelo and LiAngelo, were on fire.

Being coached by their father LaVar Ball, sixteen year old LaMelo scored a huge 39 points, 16 rebounds, 16 assists and 6 steals, whilst LiAngelo nailed a massive 44 points.

The game ended 110-127 in the Big Ballers favour and the Lions now feel they have a score to settle.

Aside from time on the court, the Big Ballers family are renowned for their reality TV show, “Ball in the Family” - it’s one of the biggest, number one shows on Facebook.

Where the Big Baller Brand go a long line of fans are sure to follow and exposure for this game will be high, particularly in the US.

They also run one of the most popular athletic and lifestyle apparel brands in America.

Vince Macaulay, London Lions head coach, said: “We are ecstatic to be welcoming back the Big Baller clan to the Copper Box.

“Our last meeting was fearless and fast, with high point scoring.

“The fans continued to stream through the door and ultimately we had to turn some away - the atmosphere was electric!

“We can’t wait for the rematch and have some secret weapons - it’s our jungle and this time we want to come out on top.”

Tickets go on sale on www.ticketmaster.co.uk tomorrow Friday, October, 12 at 9am and are expected to sell out.
