Manchester Giants’ BBL Cup quarter-final against Cheshire Phoenix will be played on Sunday November 18 at the Ellesmere Port Arena.

The two sides were already scheduled to play in the league on that date, and both clubs have agreed to change this to the cup game, rather than play twice on the same weekend.

Phoenix are the current holders of the BBL Cup, having beaten Worcester Wolves in the final back in January.

It is the first time the Giants have progressed to the quarter-finals since the clubs return to the BBL in 2012, following an outstanding 92-75 win over Surrey Scorchers last weekend.

The league game has been re-scheduled for Good Friday, April 19, with a 2pm tip-off.

Tickets for the BBL Cup quarter-final are priced at £13 adults and £9 children, available on the door.

The GIANTS are at home twice in November – this Sunday against London Lions and then against Surrey Scorchers on Sunday November 25. Tickets are available online, CLICK HERE or call 0161 747 2485.
