The University is partnering up with British Basketball for the GB vs Greece Senior Men’s International game next month at the Copper Box Arena in London.

And as an official partner for the game on Saturday 19 August, staff and students at the University can enjoy a third off the price of the tickets.

The University is also extending its relationship with British Basketball as a training venue for its Under 20 Men’s team.

British Basketball Chief Executive, Lisa Wainwright, said: “The University of Essex has always provided us with outstanding facilities and services whenever we host camps or events there. We’re looking forward to working with them on the game.”

The University’s Director of Sport Dave Parry added: “The University of Essex is proud to be a commercial partner of British Basketball for the match against Greece. We are committed to supporting the game of basketball from grass roots to elite performance, through our community projects and junior teams, up to our basketball scholarship programme.

“We are delighted that we are again hosting Great Britain teams for training camps at our facilities, and hope to continue to do so in future, particularly when our new £11m three-court facility opens later this year.”

• Check the British Basketball website for further details of tickets with the discount code.
