Reaction of nickel(II) chloride with sodium dicyanamide and pyridazine leads to single crystals of the title compound, [Ni{N(CN)2}2(C4H4N2)4], in which the NiII cation is octa­hedrally coordinated by two dicyanamide anions and four pyridazine ligands into a discrete complex that is located on a center of inversion.
