The Blues, Chiefs, Hurricanes, Crusaders and Highlanders will play each other over 10 weeks from June 13 in a tournament called Super Rugby Aotearoa.
Sky Sports will show every game live, kicking off with Highlanders vs the Chiefs from Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.
With all the All Blacks stars on show, this tournament promises to bring the best from the Southern Hemisphere.
New Zealand Rugby are looking to make the game even more exciting for fans with some new innovations trialled, including replacements for sent-off players and Golden Point in extra-time.
The five teams will play each other home and away over 10 weeks, with two matches every weekend, with all matches being played in closed stadiums.
The points system remains the same the Super Rugby competition with four points awarded for a win, two points for a draw and bonus points are awarded for losing by seven points or less or by winning by three tries or more.
At the end of 10 rounds, the team on the most competition points will be crowned the inaugural Super Rugby Aotearoa champion.
