Four Manchester Giants games, including two at home, will be broadcast live by BBC Sport via their website and app.

The home games against Leeds Force (9th February) and Surrey Scorchers (30th March) will be shown live from the Powerleague Trafford Sportsdome, as part of the British Basketball League’s deal with BBC.

Two further games, away at Cheshire Phoenix (23rd February) and Plymouth Raiders (16th March) will also be broadcast live.

Last season, just one game involving the Giants was shown – the away defeat in Worcester.

The full games are available to watch in full on iPlayer for 30 days after each game.

While there is no change to the dates or times of the above four games, another Giants game has been re-scheduled owing to changes – the trip to Sheffield Sharks on Friday March 9th, which is now to be played on Wednesday March 28th.

The BBC’s live coverage of the BBL starts on December 15th, when Newcastle Eagles host Leicester Riders.
