Sport in brief with Jamie J: September 21
MEN’S FOOTBALL: Iceland’s Breidablik FC travel to Maccabi Tel-Aviv for their first ever Europa Conference Group stage match on Thursday evening, exactly 12 weeks after they began their onslaught on Europe with a 7-1 Champions League preliminary round qualifier win over San Marino’s Tre Penne.
En route to Thursday night’s game they have seen off the likes of Montenegro’s Buducnost Pogorica, Shamrock Rovers and North Macedonia’s Straga.
CYCLING: The European Road Race Championships continue on the flat roads of Emmen tomorrow with the 38.4km mixed team time trial relay.
Switzerland have made one change to their squad that claimed victory at last month’s World Championships in Glasgow with Johan Jacobs replacing Mauro Schmid.
Britain, who finished fourth behind the Swiss, missing out on a medal by just 12 seconds, have not entered a team.
SPEEDWAY: After heavy rain in Manchester caused the postponement of Monday’s Premiership semi-final first leg play-off between regular season table-toppers Belle Vue and fourth-placed Ipswich, the teams will try again in Suffolk tomorrow evening.
Belle Vue will be without injured riders Charles Wright and Norick Blodorn while the Witches have replaced Jason Doyle with Chris Harris. The second leg is scheduled for next Thursday.
MEN’S BASKETBALL: Reigning British Basketball League champions London Lions play their first home game of the season when they welcome the Caledonia Gladiators, last year’s BBL Trophy winners, to the Copper Box Arena this evening.
Both teams enjoyed winning starts to the campaign last weekend and both will be competing in Europe with Caledonia facing Switzerland’s Fribourg Olympia in a Champions League pre-qualifying tie on Monday.
T20: Dallas, Florida and New York will stage matches at next year’s Men’s T20 World Cup, the International Cricket Council has announced.
The June tournament is set to be played in the United States for the first time, with the West Indies as co-hosts.
Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County in New York have been named as host venues in the US.
The Nassau County matches will take place at a 34,000-seat stadium to be built in Eisenhower Park, while the games in Grand Prairie and Broward County will be staged in existing venues which are to be expanded.
