The dates and venues have been confirmed for the Oceania Women's Olympic Football Playoff later this month, with Papua New Guinea hoping home-town support can give them a boost in the opening game.
The first leg will be held in Lae next Saturday before the return match in Auckland three days later.
The General Secretary of the PNG Football Association, Dimirit Mileng, says they're grateful to be starting on home soil.
"New Zealand has not disagreed on this so I thank New Zealand to let us have the first game. We are always wary of the sort of players that are brought up in New Zealand and we're happy to have this first match and we'd like to give everything in the first match and see how we go."
PNG qualified for the Olympic Play-Off by winning the first round qualifying event during the Pacific Games in Port Moresby last year, while New Zealand advanced directly thanks to their strong world ranking.
The Football Ferns are two-time defending OFC champions, having toppled PNG in both the 2008 and 2012 playoffs.
