The last time the Sydney Kings and New Zealand Breakers stepped onto the court at Qudos Bank Arena, they produced one of the NBL's most epic game five grand final clashes.

That showdown capped an extraordinary Championship Series, which saw the Kings claim their fifth NBL title.

In fact, all eight fixtures between the two sides in NBL23 were amazing, so it's safe to assume that trend will follow during the upcoming 2023-24 campaign.

With the full NBL24 schedule set to be released on Thursday, April 20, the competition has revealed some of its marquee match-ups for the new campaign, including all three grand final replays - the first of which will be at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday, November 5 from 3.45pm AEDT.

"Last season's thrilling Championship Series had it all and we're super excited to be hosting the first match between the two sides at Qudos Bank Arena in November," Hoops Capital CEO Sean Nicholls said.

"We broke two NBL attendance records during that series, recording sellouts of more than 18,000 fans in games three and five and can't wait to fill up Qudos Bank Arena once again with all our loyal purple and gold fans."
