Official statement

Essex Leopards logoEssex Leopards have announced that their agreement with the University of Essex will finish at the end of the current season.
The Big Cats have played the majority of their home games at the Essex Sports Arena this season but disappointing crowds have meant that they will make other arrangements for the 2019/20 campaign.
“We’ve enjoyed working with the University of Essex and the Essex Sports Arena is a fantastic venue to play at. Unfortunately crowds have been extremely disappointing and to safeguard the future of the club we have had to make a difficult decision” said general manager Dave Ryan.
“Our core fan-base remains at the Brentwood Centre and we hope to play as many games as possible at our traditional home with the aid of the Brentwood Leisure Trust next season”.
“We wish the University of Essex good luck for the future, especially to their women’s team who are challenging to become national champions.”
