Westpac Stadium - All Whites v Peru

Eyemagnet Tech at Westpac Stadium for All Whites v Peru

The All Whites are set to take on Peru at Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Saturday 11 November, as their final step for their FIFA World Cup Qualifying campaign.

After defeating the Solomon Islands 8-3 to earn their place in the Intercontinental Playoff, the All Whites will now face the World No. 12 Peru after they finished as the fifth-ranked South American team. Football fans across New Zealand will be cheering on the All Whites as they battle for a place in Russia next year at the biggest sporting event in the world.

38,000 fans will be showing up to the sold-out game on Saturday night – the match is shaping up to be the biggest football event in New Zealand's history, topping 35,179 when the All Whites defeated Bahrain in 2009 at Westpac Stadium to qualify for the World Cup. The All Whites are focused on delivering a repeat of this historic night, and fans will be flooding the Stadium with white to show their support.
