Italy vs All Blacks to be played at Stadio Olimpico

The Italian Rugby Federation have opted to play the Italy vs All Blacks clash in November at the 72,000-seat Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The Italian Rugby Federation made the announcement on Wednesday following a Six Nations season in which both of Italy’s home matches at the Stadio Olimpico were sold out.

Italy last hosted New Zealand in Milan’s San Siro stadium in 2009, with the All Blacks winning 20-6.

While the final details are still being worked out, Italy is also planning to face Tonga on Nov. 10 in Turin, then play Australia on Nov. 24 in Bologna.

The match against the All Blacks in Rome is scheduled for November 17.
