The New Zealand All Blacks will return to the US in October, to play the USA at FedEx Field, home of the Washington NFL team.
The new home of NFL franchise, the Las Vegas Raiders is positioned as the prospective host venue. The Allegiant Stadium seats 70,000 spectators.
The match would be the second time wherein the USA Eagles take on the New Zealand All Blacks at an NFL venue. The All Blacks were 74-6 winners at Chicago’s Soldier Field in 2014. Soldier Field also hosted the USA vs Australia in 2015; Ireland vs New Zealand in 2016; and the USA vs Maori All Blacks in 2018.
The 23 October fixture falls a week before the Eagles face Ireland at another NFL venue, Allegiant Stadium, in Las Vegas.
