The newly renamed Southern Blast will begin its 2019 Beko League campaign in Auckland.
It will face the Northern Comets in a televised game on March 2 at Trusts Arena.
From there it will have the week off before returning to Invercargill to host Central Manawa on March 17.
A week later, the team travels up the road to Dunedin to play Waikato-Bay of Plenty.
The tournament continues until May 19, when the final is held in Christchurch.
The Beko League acts as a stepping stone to the ANZ Premiership, the Blast being a feeder team to the Southern Steel.
A 23-player training squad, yet to be cut to a final squad, was named in October.
