Flyers 2019/20 schedule to be revealed on Wednesday

Bristol Flyers’ 2019/20 schedule will be revealed at 12noon on Wednesday, July 10th.

The British Basketball League recently announced some exciting changes to the format of the upcoming campaign, with a best-of-three game series introduced to the first and second round of the BBL play-offs ahead of the showpiece final at London’s O2 Arena in May, 2020.

Qualification remains the same with the top eight teams in the BBL Championship standings advancing to the play-offs, though the regular season will now consist of 22 games, with the teams playing each other just once, home and away.

The 2019/20 season will begin in September, with the BBL Cup, as the start of the regular season follows the conclusion of a new group stage. The 12 BBL sides will be split into two groups of six to play home and away games before the top four in each group advance to the quarter-finals.

The BBL Trophy will remain the same with the adopted bracket format from the 2018/19 season retained. The path to the final at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena is mapped out, with the 12 BBL sides once again joined by four invited non-BBL clubs.
