Adelaide - Hindmarsh Stadium, Auckland - Eden Park, Brisbane - Brisbane Stadium, Dunedin - Dunedin Stadium, Hamilton - Waikato Stadium, Melbourne - Melbourne Rectangular Stadium, Perth - Perth Rectangular Stadium (HBF Park), Sydney - Stadium Australia and Sydney Football Stadium,Wellington - Wellington Stadium.
