The All Whites could be playing in front of a home crowd as early as October as New Zealand Football begins the process of bringing international opposition to New Zealand.
New Zealand Football CEO Michael Glading says bringing a top international team to New Zealand would be a good way to repay the public support the All Whites received during their unbeaten run at the world cup.
Glading says there are still plenty of administrative hoops to jump through, as getting a top side to travel here has never been easy, nor is it a cheap exercise.
But he says the All Whites stocks have risen dramatically because of their world cup efforts.
There are four international match windows, periods when cubs are obligated to release players for international duty, left in the year.
Glading says the best of those is from October 9th to 13th and but he won't be drawn on who any likely opposition could be.
