London Lions Shortlisted for 2023 Sports Industry Award
It's with our esteemed pleasure to announce that the London Lions have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2023 Sports Industry Award - 'Best in Social.'
The Sports Industry Awards awards, judged by a panel of leaders from the industry, sees the London Lions up against a closely contested category with other finalists including The FA, Commonwealth games and the Rugby League World Cup.
Social media has been at the forefront of the London Lions mission to transform the sport in the UK and win over a new audience both online and in venue. The Lions have seen their social media fan base grow by 400% since the start of this season and with months still to go until the playoffs, there is no letting up.
Oliver Emery, Chief Content Officer
“To be shortlisted in what is essentially year 1 of the new-look London Lions, is a huge feat and we don’t take it lightly; we are thrilled. We’ve built an in-house content team from scratch and all within just a matter of months. This shortlisting is a reflection of both the incredible work ethic and creativity each one of them have brought to the organisation.
It’s great to see both the team and the sport getting the recognition it deserves. To accomplish this already, shows both the intent and trajectory the London Lions and British Basketball are on.”The awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 27th April at Evolution London, where all winners will be announced.
