Leicester Riders Set for Pre-Season Trip in Sweden

Leicester Riders are heading to Sweden next week for a four-day visit as they continue to build ahead of the upcoming BBL season.

Swedish top division side Norrköping Dolphins will host the visit whilst providing tough opposition for the Riders, who are also taking the women’s side for training camp.

So far, Leicester have beaten USA Select and Loughborough in pre-season outings and will be hoping for a beneficial trip to Sweden.

“We are really looking forward to the trip,” said Riders Head Coach Rob Paternostro. “It gives us a chance to play against good competition and should hopefully set us up well for the BBL season.

“I know the team is looking forward to playing Norrköping, and gaining more game experience from playing against teams with different playing styles.”

Check out their schedule here:

Friday 18th September
5pm – Leicester Riders vs Norrköping Dolphins

Sunday 20th September
