Riders and Spire Leicester Hospital Continue Partnership

Leicester Riders and Spire Leicester Hospital have agreed to extend their partnership for the private healthcare provider to sponsor the club for the new season.

The Riders are reigning BBL Play-Off champions and have started the new season as they left off with some excellent results in the BBL Cup.

“We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Leicester Riders,” said Douglas Pattisson Hospital Director.

“The Riders combine elite performance with a commitment to the community and very much share our values and ethos in that regard.

“We want Riders to be able to field the best teams possible at all times and accessing timely, expert medical care and support here at Spire Leicester Hospital will be an important element in achieving that objective.

“We are looking forward to working with the Riders and wish them every success for the season ahead.”

Riders Chairman Kevin Routledge added, “Getting the right support in a timely manner for our players, and ensuring we get the very best medical advice, is something we have had from Spire over a number of years and we are delighted that will continue.

“Spire and their team have become an important part of the Riders family and we are very pleased that partnership and the support they provide will continue.”
