London City Royals, BBL’s Newest Franchise, Begin Life at Crystal Palace

The London City Royals, the BBL’s newest franchise, came into the league with a lot of fanfare – so we headed down to Crystal Palace National Sports Centre for their first home game as they took on Surrey Scorchers to find out what the deal is.

With a focus on British basketball talent, the Royals have signed the likes of Matthew Bryan-Amaning, Ashley Hamilton, Ed Lucas, Orlan Jackman, Will Neighbour, Elvisi Dusha and more, whilst being coached by former England and GB international Junior Williams.

Led by CEO Jon Sawyer & Head of Basketball Operations Nhamo Shire, the Royals have created quite the buzz around the British basketball league, with both fans and opponents, as they attempt to push the game to new heights.
