BBL and WBBL clubs unite to show solidarity in support of Ukraine


The British Basketball League (BBL) and its 23 Men’s and
Women’s clubs will stand together over the next five days in solidarity with
the people of Ukraine, showing support at all matches from March 4th-9th.

The thoughts of the British Basketball community are with
all of those who have been impacted by the Russian’s invasion of the Ukraine. We
unequivocally reject Russia’s actions and wish to show our support for the
people of Ukraine.

As such the BBL’s Men’s and Women’s teams will all take part
in 24 seconds of reflection and a show of solidarity before tip-off at each
game between March 4th-9th.

Clubs will also show the blue and yellow colours of the
Ukrainian flag with the wording ‘Basketball Stands Together’ on screens at
their arenas.

This message of solidarity will also be visible to the BBL’s
global fanbase across our digital channels, as logos and profiles on those
platforms will change to represent the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
