Brisbane confirmed as venue for All Whites match against Socceroos

posted in: All Whites, Events

Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium will host the first leg of the two-match international series between the All Whites and Australia’s Socceroos in September.

The multi-sport stadium has a crowd capacity of 52,000.

The match on Thursday September 22 will kick off at 10pm (NZT).

Both teams will then travel to Auckland for the second game in the series at Eden Park, Auckland on Sunday September 25 (4pm kick-off).

The two-game series celebrates 100 years of trans-Tasman football and will be the first time the two men’s national sides have met in more than 10 years.

Ahead of 2023, New Zealand Football will carry out an independent campaign de-brief of the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying cycle, as has been undertaken for previous major national team activity, including most recently the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019.

The objective of the de-brief is to analyse what went well and could be improved from the campaign, identifying recommendations to take into future national team activity.

New Zealand Football CEO Andrew Pragnell said:

“It is fair to say the whole country was gutted with the result against Costa Rica. It is now important as we look forward to 2024 and 2026 that we evaluate the qualifying and identify lessons we can take into the next campaign, that will begin in March 2023.

“It is great to close the year for the All Whites by finally bringing the team home so that fans in Aotearoa can experience this generation of players, many playing at home for the first time, ahead of an exciting future for this young side.”
