BBC Sport - BBL: Bristol Flyers primed for debut season in top flight

Flyers primed for BBL lift-off

BBC Points West previews the start of Bristol Flyers' journey in the BBL - the top flight of English basketball.

Established in 2006, the Flyers secured promotion to Division One in 2007 and were crowned champions four years later.

And, after receiving financial backing from Bristol City owner Stephen Lansdown, the club were accepted into the BBL for the 2014-15 campaign, which starts on Saturday.
