The National Basketball League (NBL) Grand Final is the championship series for the NBL and the conclusion of the NBL's postseason. Between 1979 and 1986, the league used a single game to determine the champion. From 1986 to 2003, the league used a best-of-three series format. The 2004 series saw a switch to best-of-five. In 2010, the series became a best-of-three format once again until in 2017 the NBL switched back to a best-of-five format for the grand final series. The Perth Wildcats hold the record for the most championships won all time, having won 9 grand finals.
