Win tickets to our amazing Olympic and Paralympic events
The nation’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes will team up with some of the biggest names in music and entertainment at 2 massive National Lottery homecoming events this summer – and you’ve got the chance to be there.
The 2 landmark events at The SSE Arena, Wembley, will be held in August and September. Due to the pandemic, Olympians and Paralympians will be unable to enjoy the usual opportunity to celebrate at the Closing Ceremony of the Games, so the events in London will provide a first chance to be reunited with fans, friends and family.
First up is The National Lottery’s Team GB Homecoming on Sunday 15th August 2021. It will be hosted by broadcaster Clara Amfo and feature performances by artists including Anne-Marie, Bastille, Griff, Laura Mvula and Rag’n’Bone Man.
The National Lottery’s ParalympicsGB Homecoming will take place on Sunday 12th September 2021 with a stellar line-up of talent announced closer to the date.
Tickets to both events will be available exclusively to National Lottery players – the people who have powered Team GB and ParalympicsGB to success since 1997. In addition, hundreds of tickets for the events will be given to key workers to celebrate and thank them for their incredible work for the country through the pandemic.
Tickets will be allocated via a ballot system. The ballot for The National Lottery’s Team GB Homecoming event opened on Wednesday 14th July 2021, with 4,000 pairs of tickets available. To enter the ballot, players can use any ticket from a National Lottery game purchased any time after 1st June 2021.
In addition to the big name musicians appearing at the Team GB Homecoming, there will be a collaboration with The Ivors Academy Trust which will see a performance by Ivor Novello Award winners. They will be supported by a range of amazing performances from organisations including the English National Ballet, Chickenshed, The Spirituals Choir, Rambert and Motionhouse. Further artists and details of the unique performances will be announced prior to the show.
Team GB Homecoming host Clara Amfo said, “It would be an understatement to say that the road to Tokyo has not been easy for Team GB, but their dedication and passion to the sports they love has been nothing short of inspiring! I am so honoured to be The National Lottery Team GB Homecoming host on what promises to be a brilliant show full of celebration and love. Every single athlete deserves the very best homecoming and what better place than Wembley with these world class artists!”
Louis Smith, Team GB gymnast and medallist in the last 3 Olympic Games, said, “Without the continued support of National Lottery players, British sport wouldn’t be where it is today. The National Lottery’s Homecoming events not only say thank you to the players but also welcome home Team GB and ParalympicsGB.”
