The Oceania Football Confederation has announced that New Zealand's 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Fiji will be played in Apia, Samoa on the 23rd of June.

The match was to be played last October at North Harbour Stadium, but FIFA postponed it after the Fijian goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau was denied an entry visa because of a relative's military connections.
