The Plymouth Raiders will open their 2017/18 season with an away game at local rivals Bristol Flyers on Saturday 30th September. The club’s first home game is the weekend after, on Sunday 8th October against Leeds Force at the Plymouth Pavilions.
The Raiders have been drawn away to Surrey Scorchers in the first round of the BBL Cup, the game being played on Sunday 22nd October. The draw for the BBL Trophy has not yet been made.
Across the season, before any further BBL Cup or Trophy Games, the Raiders will travel just over 10,000 miles.
The season ahead will be extremely interesting, with at least 5 teams changing coaches and high profile players leaving or moving from one BBL team to another. Raiders hope to appoint our new coach in the coming days and team recruitment can then start in earnest.
