The Lethbridge Bulls are set to start the 2016 WMBL season! Last year was a truly special year for the Bulls. They won the West Division title, and then clean swept the playoffs going 9-0 en route to their first WMBL Championship. Due to the wildfires in Fort McMurray the start of the 2016 campaign was altered slightly. The Bulls will now play a doubleheader against Fort McMurray on Sunday, and the 3rd game of the set on Monday night in Edmonton. For the 2016 season the Fort McMurray Giants will play all of their home games at Telus Field in Edmonton. The boys will finish up the road trip on Tuesday against the other WMBL expansion team, the Brooks Bombers starting at 7:05pm.
The Bulls will still be a little short manned. There are half a dozen guys still playing or traveling to Lethbridge to join the club for the season. Expectations remain the same for the defending champions. Coach MacDonalds club will look to get off to a good start in the 2016 season this weekend as they attempt to defend the title they won in 2015.
The Bulls will kick off their home schedule next Friday June 3rd against the Edmonton Prospects. Game time will be 7:05pm. Make sure to come on out and support the Bulls in the 2016 season. Tickets are still available for the home opener and it isn’t too late to get season tickets for the 2016 season. For more information regarding tickets please contact the Spitz Stadium office at 403-320-2025.
