The All Whites return to New Zealand, facing China PR at Mt Smart Stadium

Kick off Thursday 23 March, 7.00pm

The All Whites will kick off their FIFA World Cup 2026 cycle with two home games against China this March. The team will play the first game at Mt Smart Stadium in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland on Thursday 23 March (KO 7pm) and the second at Sky Stadium in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington on Sunday 26 March (KO 4pm). 

The games will be the first All Whites fixtures at Mt Smart since 2014 and the first at Sky Stadium since 2017. 

The side will be led by interim head coach Darren Bazeley. Bazeley will take on the role on an interim basis, in addition to being U-20s head coach, after the leading candidate for the permanent All Whites head coach role had to be called upon to help manage a family health issue meaning they weren’t able to take up the position ahead of these fixtures.  

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketek.

In addition to the All Whites game, the men’s U-23 side will also play a curtain raiser against China’s U-23 team. The curtain raiser will kick off at 3.30pm with gates opening at 2.30pm.
