The keenly-awaited first meeting between San-en and Shiga, featuring the Ravenas, is set on October 2.
Kiefer left for Japan late last month to complete the needed requirements for his stint with the Shiga Lakestars.
Thirdy is already in his second season with the San-en NeoPhoenix after signing a multi-year deal with the club last May.
