All Blacks 2024 fixtures: New Zealand Rugby full schedule

All Blacks 2024 home tests in Dunedin, Auckland, and Wellington and a historic clash with Fiji in San Diego headline a blockbuster 14-test season for the All Blacks under new coach Scott Robertson.

The new head coach will manage 14 Tests in his first season on the international scene. He will begin with two games against England in the middle of the year, played in Dunedin and Auckland, before heading to the United States to face Fiji.

Robertson’s first Rugby Championship game will be against Argentina in Wellington in early August. A week later, the All Blacks will face Los Pumas at Eden Park as part of the South American side’s ‘mini-tour.’

The All Blacks then go on a ‘mini-tour’ to the old foe, the Springboks, who they face in back-to-back Tests before returning to Australasia for the Bledisloe Cup.

The New Zealanders head north to face Japan, England, Ireland, France, and Italy in the Autumn Nations Series 2024 to close the year.

Ready to start

Robertson is raring to go with the All Blacks and believes beginning his tenure against England is a perfect start.

“Playing England under the roof in Dunedin is a great start for us in a world-class stadium, and then we go up to Auckland where we have a great record that we are proud of,” Robertson said.

“We then fly off to San Diego, which is exciting. The Fijians know their way around the world and come out from everywhere. I know a lot of Kiwis will make the trip as well.”

As any All Blacks boss would, Robertson is particularly excited to face up to the Springboks later this year.

“We are playing up on the Highveld at Ellis Park and then down to Cape Town – they are iconic Tests, and I know a lot of Kiwis will be excited about that. It is a great chance to learn about ourselves against the world champions. It’s a chance to support us locally and internationally. It’s also a chance to get behind this team and experience it with us, which is exciting. And be proud to wear your All Blacks jersey wherever we go.”

The game with Fiji will be memorable.

New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson echoed his coach’s sentiment and underlined the importance of the fixture against Fiji.

“There is no better way to start the year on home soil. To have four of the first five Tests of 2024 at home in Aotearoa, Dunedin, Wellington, and Auckland is a great result, and we’re excited to be taking the All Blacks to San Diego to play Fiji,” he said.

“It’s been a long-held ambition for New Zealand Rugby and part of our more comprehensive strategy to increase the visibility and understanding of rugby in North America and to build our brand presence ahead of the men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups in 2031 and 2033, respectively.

“The All Blacks and Fiji share a deep connection to rugby and the Pacific region, and we’d like to thank USA Rugby and our event partner, TEG Rugby Live, for embracing the opportunity to bring this Test to America.

“We want to deliver an event that will capture the imagination of sports fans across the United States and showcase the best qualities of our game. It promises to be a unique and entertaining afternoon of rugby and Pacific culture and a great advertisement for the game.”
