Bristol Flyers' Betway All-Stars Championship opponents revealed

The fixtures for the first double elimination group games at the Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship have been announced.

Bristol Flyers take on the BBL Play-Off runners-up from last season, Newcastle Eagles in the opening round, before facing either Glasgow Rocks or London Lions in the second game of the group stage.

The first round of the Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship is a double elimination group stage comprising a total of ten matches, with the subsequent six fixtures determined by the outcome of the first four. Two straight wins will qualify a team for the semi-finals while two straight defeats will spell elimination. The final set of matches in the group will feature teams with one win and one defeat competing to stay in the competition.

Fixtures for the semi-finals will be drawn shortly after the conclusion of the group stage.

The Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship introduces some exciting new innovations as the top eight BBL teams compete for a record-breaking £100,000 prize fund. Matches are just 12 minutes long with a 20-second shot clock while an All-Star five-point line offers rewards for those willing to brave a shot from distance.

The full format for the Betway British Basketball All-stars Championship can be found below.

Tickets and transport for the Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship at London's O2 Arena on Sunday, September 24th are still available.
