Lakeland Magic Kick Off 2021-2022 Basketball Season with Theme Nights + Giveaways at All Home Games

Lakeland Magic

The Lakeland Magic kick off the 2021–22 basketball season with back-to-back games on Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th as the reigning G League Basketball Champs!

That’s right – in March 2021, our Lakeland Magic won it all. They played the 2020-21 season in “the bubble” at Disney, so we didn’t get to watch them win the championship in person, but you CAN celebrate with the team when they kick off the upcoming season right here in Lakeland at the RP Funding Center.

Many attraction closures and event postponements have been announced beginning September 27 due to Hurricane Ian. We are editing our calendar and articles if we receive notice of event changes, but please be sure to check directly with organizers to confirm any events or activities through October 9. A link is provided at the bottom of every event on our calendar and in all articles.

The Lakeland Magic are excited to play in front of a live audience again, and they are taking things to the next level this season with promotional giveaways at EVERY.SINGLE.GAME!

You and your family can join the Lakeland Magic for a 24-game season that starts with a huge championship celebration weekend and includes themed nights for health care heroes, Hispanic heritage, Star Wars, 90’s night, Swish’s Birthday, Black History Month, and Youth Basketball night and more. Oh, and did we mention giveaways galore??

If you’re looking for things to do in Lakeland, trust us and put Lakeland Magic games on your list. All season long you’ll find awesome deals on tickets, pre-game activities, in-game entertainment, special giveaways, and more. Kids can even go onto the court after the game for layups and player autographs (pending league safety protocols).
