In the title salt, [Ni(C12H14N6O)2](CF3SO3)2·2CH3OH, the Ni II ion is coordinated by six N atoms from two tridentate 1-methoxy-2,2,2-tris(pyrazol-1-yl)ethane ligands in a distorted octahedral geometry. The NiII ion is situated on an inversion centre. The Ni - N distances range from 2.0589 (19) to 2.0757 (19) Å, intra-ligand N - Ni - N angles range from 84.50 (8) to 85.15 (8)°, and adjacent inter-ligand N - Ni - N angles range between 94.85 (8) and 95.50 (8)°. In the crystal, O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds between methanol solvent molecules and trifluoromethanesulfonate anions are observed.
