It is now under two months until the Sky Sport NZ Breakers return to Christchurch for the first time since 2004 to play the S.E. Melbourne Phoenix and fans will be able to enjoy much more than just the big regular season clash at Horncastle Arena on the 20th December.
The action starts the night before (Friday 19th) with the Breakers Exclusive Event taking place at Horncastle from 6pm-8pm, where fans who have purchased combo passes at gold or above will get to meet the team, watch them train and get photos and signatures!
Things tip off early on Saturday with the recently announced Canterbury High School All Star basketball games being played as curtain raisers to the Breakers game. The best high school boys and girls from around Canterbury will play in what will be two very entertaining matches. The girls game starting at 2.10pm, with the boys following on from them starting at 3.50pm.

The Meadow Fresh Court of Dreams game is next on the schedule, where Somerfield School and Halswell School Year 7/8 teams will play against each other in a 15-minute mini curtain raiser game.

Melbourne Phoenix who have made a very strong start to their first season in the Hungry Jacks NBL (currently 4-1).
