Essex Rebels are excited to announce a special line-up of new gameday themes for the second half of the 23-24 season.

As we bid farewell to 2023 with our last gameday theme of the year this Saturday, we are ready to usher in a whole new level of excitement for Rebel fans in the second half of 2024.

The first half of the season saw some spectacular events such as the Spooky Hoops Halloween Special, Diwali Night, and the unforgettable 60th Anniversary Celebratory special where 1450 fans packed into the Essex Sport Arena! However, 2024 promises to go even bigger and better!

Choose Your Theme – Saturday January 13th: ‘Wear Red’ or ‘Retro Night’

Kicking off the second half of the season on Saturday 13th January, we’re giving our fans the power to decide the theme for the day. Will it be a sea of red in the arena or a blast from the past with ‘Retro Night’ featuring the best tunes from the 80s and 90s? Your vote will determine the theme, so make sure to join us this Saturday for this interactive fan experience!
