Our pre-season weekend is the 11th and 12th of September when we take on Peterborough home and away.  We then move into the Cup where we will play Raiders, Basingstoke Bison, Swindon Wildcats and Leeds Knights at home, and will travel to Telford Tigers, Sheffield Steeldogs, Bees and Peterborough Phantoms.

League competition begins for us on Saturday 16th October against Raiders and ends away to Telford Tigers on 3rd April.

As we mentioned last week, the key season dates are:

  • Pre-season fixtures (optional for teams): 4/5 September and 11/12 September
  • Cup: Friday 17th September to Sunday 10th October
  • League: Friday 15th October to Sunday 3rd April
  • Playoffs: 9/10 April, 16/17 April, 23/24 April
  • Coventry Finals Weekend: 31 April / 1st May

The cup competition begins with Leeds, Swindon, Basingstoke and MK at home on Saturday 18th, and Bees, Telford, Peterborough and Raiders at home on Sunday 19th.

The 9 team structure also sees the introduction of some Friday fixtures, which will be an exciting start to the weekend, as well as some mid-week matches which have aimed to align with school half terms as much as possible.

We are hugely excited by this next step towards the start of the season.  Check out the full fixture list here.
