Where will the U-20 world cup take you?
FIFA’s second largest tournament is coming to New Zealand! We will host the 52 games of the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2015 across seven stunning cities that each have their own character, history and hidden gems.
The New Zealand game spirit high as ever! After a successful Rugby World Cup in 2011 and Cricket World Cup in 2014, the atmosphere is expected to be buzzing.
The city is the world’s gateway to the Arctic, with a research centre from many different countries like the US, Italy and, of course, New Zealand. Most Arctic exploration missions leave from Christchurch. For more things to do, check out Christchurch City – Guide for Backpackers.
