🎟️ Tickets are on sale here!
20 star players from the BBL and WBBL are all set to descend on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the British Basketball League All-Stars Game featuring a Men’s and inaugural Women’s game.
The 2024 All-Stars Game will be a showdown between North and South. The squads will have at least one player represented from each men’s and women’s clubs, based on their team’s location (North or South), with fan votes deciding the pool of 10 starter players. Fan voting opens in early 2024.
After all the votes are tallied the league will rank players by position (frontcourt or guard) in each pool. The three highest-voted-for frontcourt players and the two highest-voted-for guards (from each pool) are selected as starters.
North teams: Caledonia Gladiators, Seriös Group Newcastle Eagles, Cheshire Phoenix, Manchester Giants, B. Braun Sheffield Sharks.
South teams: Leicester Riders, London Lions, Bristol Flyers, Surrey Scorchers, Plymouth City Patriots.
Each team will be managed by a head coach who is selected as the coach with the best league record within the North and South teams. The chosen head coaches will participate in a live-streamed draft where they will select their reserves, picking one from each club.
The All-Stars Game promises not to disappoint. It will be a jam-packed day of events for all fans to enjoy, including a dedicated Fan Zone, the much-loved Slam Dunk Competition, a Three-Point Shoot Out, a Skills Challenge and much more.
