Manchester’s National Basketball Performance Centre plays host to Great Britain Women on June 19th as they face Canada in preparation for the FIBA Women’s Eurobasket Finals 2019.
And a special discounted ticket price is available for families and groups of youngsters to attend the game. Families (2 adults, 2 children) can get in for just £24, while a group of 10 juniors will be charged £48 with an adult going free.
GB Women will host the Canadians after surprising many people in the qualifying stages and head coach Chema Buceta will no doubt look to his CCC Polkowice duo, Temi Fagbenle and Johannah Leedham-Warner, to continue their impressive performances from the qualifying rounds.
WNBA centre, Fagbenle joined the squad after being voted the Polish MVP whilst Leedham-Warner led her country in efficiency, scoring, rebounding, assists and steals during the qualifiers.
Guard Savannah Wilkinson is part of the squad and said: “Being selected to practice and play with Great Britain on my chest is always such an honour.
“I am so grateful that I have been selected and extremely excited for the FIBA Women’s Eurobasket prep ahead. We have such a talented group so the sky is the limit. I just can’t wait to get to Manchester to get started.”
The match-up against Canada will also be Great Britain’s only chance to play a game on home soil before the Finals, where they face co-hosts Lativa, Ukraine and defending champions Spain in a tough Group phase.
“Now we will do our best to compete at the highest level against the best teams in Europe. We know it is going to be difficult, but we will face it with ambition, courage, team attitude and self-confidence,” said Buceta.
The game will take place at the National Basketball Performance Centre, Belle Vue, Manchester on Wednesday June 19th at 7:30 pm.
