In 2016 City of Birmingham Basketball announced the Club’s partnership with Hakeem ‘The Dream’ Olajuwon, an NBA and Olympic champion, Hall of Fame inductee, MVP, and widely considered the best forward in basketball history. CoB has had an ongoing partnership with Hakeem and we are currently on our 3rd summer camp with support from Hakeem Olajuwon.

Working with Hakeem has given exposure for the club nationally, in Europe, and through Hakeem, in the US via his work with Houston Rockets.

We also plan to enhance our arena to take advantage of match day and of secondary income to reinvest further into basketball development in the region. This will underpin the strong coaching team that is vital to continue the club’s success in participation and performance at all levels.

Our priority is to find suitable partners, like Hakeem, who share our vision to bring long term benefits to the sport in the region, and to the partners themselves.  The club is receiving unprecedented levels of membership queries, regular exposure in the local media and have a considerable local following.
