Hoops Host Call

This July, the London Lions launch their Hoops Host Call, an open talent call searching for a 2022/23 season digital presenter.

Community, inclusion, and expression are integral elements of our sport and the London Lions are committed to providing opportunities to all, on and off the court.

The Hoops Host Call is an opportunity to join one of the fastest growing sports franchises in Europe, in a role which will reach tens of millions of people.

Our new digital host will be at the forefront of London Lions social content, as well as receiving media training and the opportunity to appear in the London Lions live game broadcast.

After initial applications are screened by our expert judging panel, shortlisted applications will be invited to an exclusive event this off-season, where they will receive mentorship and training for the day.

In September 2022, we will crown our new Hoops Host as digital presenter the 22/23 Season.
