Whether it is the Leicester Community Sports Arena, Leicester Arena or as we are now known Morningside Arena Leicester (many thanks to Morningside Pharmaceuticals for their continued support!), one thing is certain…we have come a long way since opening the doors on January 27t 2016!
As well as the many great events that we have seen come to the city, some of which are featured in our recent #MorningsideMemories blogs (check that out HERE!), we have also become a key part within the local community as a hub for academic, social and sporting provision.
As part of the Leicester Riders Foundation and through our partnership with Leicester College we regularly welcome people from all backgrounds and ages as part of curriculum study and the wide selection of Basketball sessions offered though the Foundation every week.
With over 75,000 people having watched the successes of our Leicester Riders team to date at home games and a further 25,000+ taking part in regular activity annually at the venue – from elite, Junior National League and development training through the Riders themselves, to local league, Leicester Cobras, Ultimate Frisbee & Volleyball among those activities being hosted here at Morningside Arena Leicester.
2019 promises to be another year of development of growth with some fantastic events lined up alongside the continued progress of Rob Paternostro’s Leicester Riders team.
The entire Arena team would like to thank those that have joined us on the journey so far including staff, sponsors, partners and visitors who have helped to put Morningside Arena on the map.
We are now off to enjoy some well-deserved birthday cake as we continue to plan the next year and beyond!
