London Lions Basketball MatchThe London Lions, the UK's premier basketball team, will be starting its new season at the Copper Box Arena on 14th August 2013. Playing against leading US college side, the Iowa Hawkeyes, the highly anticipated international match will be one of the first major sporting events to take place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park after its public opening on 27th July. This will be the first opportunity that Londoners will have to watch the Lions in their new home - the 7,500-seat Copper Box Arena, which became known as the 'box that rocks' during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Following a major refurbishment, the arena is now under the management of charitable social enterprise GLL and is much more than a sporting venue, boasting state-of-the-art community facilities including a gym, exercise studio, caf, crche and sports hall - all of which are available to use by local resident, clubs and schools.

About Copper Box Arena

The 7,000-capacity Copper Box, home to the Handball Arena during the 2012 Olympics, has been transformed into a new venue for a wide range of indoor sports as well as cultural and business events. Located in the west of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park close to Hackney Wick station, it was one of the first legacy venues to re-open. More about Copper Box Arena
