    The timing is a little surprising to me. It will be a cold and wet tournament at beginning of winter. Maybe snow for games on South Island (Dunedin and Christchurch)? The 1999 U-17 was in Nov, but I guess the international calendar trumps weather for FIFA.

    @Bruce, I am sure that Aotearoa will look splendid that time of year.
