The Business Club will host at least five events per year, providing an insight to the inner workings of a professional club, creating networking opportunities for those involved, and enabling some of our key partners to showcase their own businesses.

It will keep our commercial partners aware of the fantastic work that the club does in the community, and also give all members of the club exposure through our marketing channels.

As the club looks to grow moving forwards, the Business Club will also keep members up to date with the club’s vision and development plans, and provide opportunities to get involved.

Members of the Business Club will receive discounts on tickets, corporate days, events and other sponsorship, making it a great way to start your businesses involvement with Manchester Giants.

Giants Business Manager, James Gordon, said: “With so much going on at the Giants, it felt like this was a natural step for us to engage with businesses and commercial partners.

“We have access to some fantastic facilities, such as David Lloyd Clubs and Grosvenor Casino, and so the ability to host varied events throughout the year and provide something a little bit different to the traditional business networking events is a primary motive of the new club.

“We want businesses to think big with the Giants and share our vision for moving forward. We hope that the Business Club will provide an insight to the aims of the clubs, and help to build trust and interest in what we’re trying to achieve.

“As the British Basketball League continues to grow, the reality is that our commercial success must move forward too, and given the league has its brilliant new media deals with BBC Sport and Perform Group, it is a fantastic time for any business to get involved.”

The first event is set to be held in February
