NZ women’s soccer has experienced a big improvement in recent years and is now considered a serious women’s soccer nation. NZ is an ideal destination for the perfect soccer and cultural tour: high caliber opposition, coaching, facilities an ideal climate & safe environment in April. PSV coaches have take a team to NZ before. In 2007 Gary & Carine took the University of North Carolina Women’s Soccer team to Australia & New Zealand (read here) on a post season tour after UNC's NCAA 2007 Championship winning season and enjoyed both wonderful sightseeing and great opposition which gave the tour an ideal mix of high quality soccer and vacation.
