Manchester Giants will take on BBL rivals Sheffield Sharks in a pre-season match in Sheffield on Saturday September 16 (4pm tip-off).

This will be a useful test for Danny Byrne’s new roster ahead of the opening BBL game of the season against Leicester Riders on Friday September 29.

The Sharks got the better of the Giants three times last season, so new faces Austin Rettig, Mark Rangeley and Clayfell Harris will be looking to prove the difference in this one.

Further pre-season dates will be announced shortly.
