The six major associations in New Zealand's domestic circuit have announced their list of contracted players for the 2008-09 season. The names exclude players who have been centrally contracted with New Zealand Cricket.

Ian Butler, the right-arm seamer who played eight Tests and 15 ODIs for New Zealand, has moved to Otago after losing his contract with Northern Districts. Harry Boam, the promising 17-year-old batsman and medium-pacer, becomes the first schoolboy cricketer to bag a contract with Wellington. The Birmingham-born Boam also featured in the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia earlier this year.
