Auckland will host three matches during the tour, with two test matches against the All Blacks on June 24 and July 8, as well as amid-week fixture against the Blues on June 7. Queens Wharf will be home to the main Auckland Fanzone and be the Auckland hub for the Rugby 2017 Festival, complete with entertainment, exhibitions and activities. It will be the biggest Series Fanzone in the country. The Queens Wharf and other selected regional Fanzones will screen the test matches live with entertainment and food.
