The Leicester Riders are one of the oldest and most successful basketball teams in the UK.
As they prepare for the start of their 2019/2020 season, leading LED lighting and electrical specialists, Ventola Projects Ltd are pleased to announce they are renewing their sponsorship for the high-flying team and the Riders Charity Foundation for another season.
This sponsorship also extends to their Mascot ‘Hotshot’ and the Leicester Riders cheerleading team, who volunteer their services to all home games, and when they aren’t performing at the arena, they are busy coaching cheerleading at Dynamites based at various locations around Leicestershire, for young adults and children in their local areas.
Dynamites and Leicester Riders Cheerleaders can sometimes be seen at other venues such as Leicester City Football Club, Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Silverstone Race Track, corporate events, etc to carry out cheerleading shows or dance routines for private hire. Amy Owen, owner of School Of Cheer can be contacted for more details.
Founder and Managing Director of Ventola Projects Ltd, Mick Ventola, has said: “All of the team here at Ventola are delighted to be sponsoring the Riders once again. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching them last season and we can’t wait to see what is in store this season. When asked why he has continued to sponsor them, he explained: “I think it is important to sponsor and support those around us give so much to the community, this team has consistently helped to place Leicestershire on the map, and the cheerleaders give up their time to help other – and without sponsorship they are unable to do so, or to make the necessary advancements they need to continue rising!”
Just last year the Riders made great progress as a team as they were announced to be the first UK side to play in Europe after their acceptance in the 2018/2019 Basketball Champions League.
The pre-season kicked off for the Riders on Saturday 7th September, which will saw them compete against the USA Select team at the Morningside Arena, Leicester.
