The New Zealand Breakers have an enviable record of success in the National Basketball League (NBL) with eight playoff appearances in the last 11 years; leading to five grand finals appearances and four championships. In February 2018 the long-term owners of the team announced the sale of the team to a notable global consortium.
The consortium is headed by former NBA player Matt Walsh, along with partners Adam Goodman, Romie Chaudhari, Dan Katz and also Shawn Marion (an NBA Champion and four-time NBA All Star). The consortium has an impressive background of Sports club ownership; Chaudhari is a part-owner and director of English Premier Club Swansea City, with Walsh also a shareholder of the club.
The consortium was attracted by the team’s excellent culture, its track record of success in the NBL, combined with the growth of basketball in New Zealand and the world class city of Auckland. Importantly, they have high regard for the turnaround of the NBL led by the Kestelman group in recent times. The NBL is one of the growing leagues in world basketball and enjoying record crowds and levels of interest. They believe the league is only going to continue to get stronger.
