The Waikato/Bay of Plenty ColourPlus Magic will be putting everything on the line to win the right to host the Grand Final of the ANZ Championship this weekend and will be relying on the support of their loyal fans to create a winning atmosphere in Mystery Creek Events Centre, Mystery Creek, Hamilton.

The fans will be treated to a memorable night as the game is set up to be a thriller and the entertainment is going to ensure the crowd are in top form to cheer on their local heroes.

Pre-match entertainment starts with the Mermaids at 4.30pm followed by Phil Madsen and then Prestige at half time.

Fisher & Paykel presents the Mermaids who are bound to get the crowd revved up prior to the whistle. The three "Mermaids" have been packing dance floors around New Zealand with their selection of pop music. Joe Cotton, winner of "Pop's Ultimate Star" and once vocalist for New Zealand's True Bliss is a member of the band alongside Mermaids founder, Amber Claire and their Manager Pauline Berry.

Phil Madsen is one of New Zealand's new singer songwriters. He was the lead singer of the Kiwi band Nurture and has featured regularly at Christmas in the Park. Madsen performed as Cher's support singer for the NZ leg of her Farewell Tour and is currently working on the finishing touches of his debut album..

During what is going to be an intense Half -Time, ANZ will be presenting Prestige, New Zealand's World reknowned Hip-Hop Dancers. Having scooped a Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal at three previous World Hop-Hop Championships, Prestige know how to captivate an audience and inspire those around them.

With the line-up of talent promised both on and off the court, the ColourPlus Magic v NSW Swifts game is one not to missed.
