Why We Sponsor the Leicester Riders

Why We Sponsor the Leicester Riders

At Easy Internet we love to be in the middle of local events and get involved with community activities. That’s why we are so proud to be continuing our sponsorship of the Leicester Riders, Leicester’s Basketball team.



The Riders are the oldest team in the UK and have won numerous awards. Their home is the Morningside Arena in central Leicester, just a stone’s throw away from the Easy Internet Leicester in Phoenix Square so it’s great for team nights out.


2019 will be the third year that Easy Internet is sponsoring the Riders. This means that our banner can be proudly seen on the side of the court as the players race up and down. We are really proud to be supporting the team, not only because we believe that sports is a great community activity and a way to bring people together, but because we love basketball!



Company founder and director Mark Esho says: I’ve previously played wheelchair basketball and really love the sport. Sponsoring the Riders is great because it’s such a family-friendly event that’s fun for all ages.


Managing Director Diana Esho says: “We love the atmosphere and energy of game night. We always find ourselves cheering at the top of our lungs!”


The Riders’ pre-season games will be running from mid-August, and the Riders’ first British Basketball League game of the 2019/2020 season will be on the 20th of September against the Sheffield Sharks. Tickets can be purchased here. We can’t wait to cheer them on and we’ll be sure to see you there. Go Riders!
