The 2020-21 edition of the Super Smash is set to commence on December 24th with the defending champions Wellington Firebirds taking on the Auckland Aces. The opening game of the season will take place at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.
As usual, the six teams participating in the event are Wellington Firebirds, Auckland Aces, Central Stags, Otago Volts, Canterbury Kings and Northern Spirit.
The format remains the same in this year's edition of the tournament. The team that finishes atop the points table will go straight into the summit clash which will take place on February 13th.
