WNBL plans to return to a full home and away structure for the upcoming 2021 season scheduled to begin in November.
The announcement from Basketball Australia comes on the back of last year's condensed hub-style season held in Queensland.
BA head of women in basketball Lauren Jackson said the talent for the 2021 season was "arguably the strongest in the history of the WNBL".
"Fans across Australia will have the opportunity to see Australian stars such as 2020 League MVP Stephanie Talbot, emerging superstar Ezi Magbegor, Opals Captain Jenna O'Hea, and 2020 Grand Final MVP Leilani Mitchell, fresh from their Olympic campaign," Jackson said.
"Added to this is exciting emerging Australian talent such as Shyla Heal and Alanna Smith, and some of the strongest USA depth out of the WNBA ever seen in the league.
"A commitment to a full season illustrates the priority of the WNBL and Clubs is to continue to grow our fan base and provide the opportunity to watch our amazing athletes both live at home stadiums and with consistent broadcast coverage."
Bendigo Spirit have put together a star-studded team for the season which includes Maddie Garrick, Leilani Mitchell, Anneli Maley and Tessa Lavey.
