The Breakers have confirmed they will take five of their regular season home games to Auckland's Vector Arena.

With the club set to raise its second consecutive championship banner after the memorable win over the Perth Wildcats in April, Breakers general manager Richard Clarke said there was already huge anticipation for the new campaign.

"The draw is an exciting one for the fans with seven Friday night games and seven Thursday night games with five games scheduled at Vector Arena. Those games are against Wollongong, Gold Coast, Perth, Townsville and Melbourne providing for great variety and quality with all three other semifinalists last year on show in the bigger venue."

The Australian NBL released its schedule for next season earlier this week.

The Breakers are drawn to play four game series against Wollongong, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Adelaide this season, with all others being three game series.

The Breakers will have the home split on the Perth Wildcats and Cairns Taipans, removing at least two potentially draining away trips from the schedule. Balancing that though is the home advantage going the way of the opposition in series against Townsville and Sydney.
