Flyers BBL Cup and Trophy dates confirmed

The dates for Bristol Flyers’ BBL Cup and BBL Trophy first round matchups have been confirmed.

Coach K’s men have been handed an away draw against Plymouth Raiders in both the Cup and Trophy competition, following the LIVE draw which took place last week. 

Flyers will travel to the Plymouth Pavilions on Sunday, October 28th (3pm tip-off) in the first round of the BBL Cup, with the winner guaranteed a home tie against the Glasgow Rocks in the quarter-finals.

The rivalry will be renewed on Sunday, December 30th in the opening round of the Trophy, featuring a new bracket format which sees the winner face either Worcester Wolves or the Rocks in the second round.

All BBL Cup and Trophy ties will be played over a single leg until the semi-final stage of the competition, which will be an aggregate score across two legs.

Tickets for both games will be available through the Plymouth Raiders' website soon.
