Great Britain Senior men will return to the Vertu Motors Arena in Newcastle next month when they take on Greece.
The home of Newcastle Eagles will host the FIBA World Cup 2023 Qualifier on Thursday 25th November at 6:30pm, making it their second consecutive home game in Newcastle, after coming up with a huge victory over Germany in February of 2020 in front of a sell-out crowd on their way to EuroBasket qualification.
However, the news has not been received positively by all players, with GB big man Gabe Olaseni tweeting that the game should be in London.
Game Should Be In London.

GB have not played in London since 2017, which was also against Greece. Since then, they have played in Leicester twice, Glasgow twice, and Manchester four times, as well as the last game in Newcastle.
After their home game with Greece on the 25th, they will travel to Turkey for a road game on November 28th.
Tickets are available to purchase now from the Newcastle Eagles Box Office.
