Taranaki airs basketball team in a huddle with a camera pointed at them



The Taranaki Airs represent the heart of basketball in New Zealand, proudly calling New Plymouth their home. They're a formidable force in the National Basketball League (NBL), captivating fans at the renowned TSB Stadium with their skill and passion for the game. Known as the Steelformers Airs, they carry the spirit of their sponsors with them onto the court.

In 2023, 25 million minutes of NZ professional Basketball were watched outside of NZ. This same year, the Taranaki Airs basketball team announced new owners - an Australian Media Company fronted by former NBA First Round Draft pick Chris Anstey.


With fresh investment, a focus on bringing a new level of professionalism to the club, world class talent and league winning aspirations, the Taranaki Airs have a lot to prove to fans and new owners alike in the 2024 season.


Already selling out to capacity crowds in 2023, with this new hope, new passion and new focus, 2024 is going to be one hell of a season.
