The Northern Mystics, Northern Stars, Splice Construction Magic, Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse, The Good Oil Tactix and Ascot Park Southern Steel will go head-to-head through 13 rounds of competition before the season culminates in a Grand Final on Sunday 2 June.

The Southern Steel come in as defending champions having won back-to-back titles, with a three-peat firmly in their sights.

All ANZ Premiership games will be broadcast LIVE on SKY Sport, with Netball Zone after every Wednesday night game and a weekly highlights show on Prime TV.
