The Albury-Wodonga Bandits are set for a clash with the Ballarat Miners/Rush on home soil when the 2021 NBL1 season gets under way.
The season fixture has now been released with the first round scheduled for April 17.
All teams in the South conference will play on the same night for a single-header Super Saturday.
It will mark the Bandits' first game since the 2019 season, after the COVID-19 pandemic derailed the competition last year.
