“The City of Latrobe is looking forward to hosting the newly formed South East Melbourne Phoenix in their first pre-season game with the National Basketball League," City of Latrobe Mayor Cr Graeme Middlemiss said earlier this year.
"The Traralgon Sports Stadium previously hosted many basketball events such as the 2006 Commonwealth Games Group Stage and WNBL regular season games"
"Bringing the pre-season NBL competition to Latrobe reinforces the strong sporting reputation of Gippsland’s only regional city."
In what is sure to be an exciting event, Latrobe City and the Phoenix are calling on all Gippsland sports fans to get along and witness some high class basketball action.
Gates Open at 6:45 pm, with top off at 7:30pm, though fans are asked to get there early with the stadium currently under redevelopment.
