Civic reception for victorious Leicester Riders
A civic reception is to be held to honour the Leicester Riders following the club's victory in the BBL Cup championship.
Players and coaches from the basketball club will be guests of the Lord Mayor councillor Abdul Osman.
The Riders won the BBL Cup last month with a thrilling 85-80 defeat of the holders Newcastle Eagles - ending the club's 12-year wait for silverware.
Coun Osman will host the reception at the Town Hall on Thursday.
