MANCHESTER Giants have recruited a trio of new staff to boost the club’s community activities.
Manchester Community Giants, the club’s not-for-profit arm, has taken on three Community Basketball Development Officers.
THE Giants have agreed new contracts with sharp-shooters Stefan Gill and David ‘Tintin’ Watts.
The agreement will see the Giants run a basketball academy at the College, ensuring students benefit from top-level coaching while getting an insight into the club and professional progression routes.
The exciting collaboration cements the College’s high standing in sports and the sports offer for the Oldham community.
The match is the first to be announced at the club’s new home venue.
We hope to confirm other pre-season games shortly.
Tickets, at a price yet to be confirmed, will be on sale in August.
And our first home game at our new base at the Trafford Powerleague Soccerdome will be two days later on Sunday, September 28 against Sheffield Sharks at 6pm.
The Worcester Wolves will be our visitors the following weekend before we make a Cup trip to Leeds Carnegie, one of two new teams in the BBL this season with Bristol, on October 10.
Situated adjacent to the Trafford Centre just off the M60, the club believe it will provide a fantastic match-night experience for supporters, players and corporate guests.
The Giants ‘early-bird’ season ticket offer is available until the end of June – and we have added an extra incentive for fans.
Discount rate season tickets are available the ‘Tickets’ section of the website HERE with an new discount for any BBL Cup, Trophy and Play-off games.
The club have also announced a reduction in prices of advanced tickets bought online.
Dave has been a huge part of the Giants’ two seasons back in the BBL and we are sorry to see him go.
The Giants fans’ player of the season for 2013-14 made a huge impact on our club and was a valued and popular member of the squad that finished in the play-offs this year.
