Italy's San Siro Stadium, the home of soccer powerhouses AC Milan and Inter Milan, is to host an All Blacks test in November.

On November 14, the All Blacks will be centre stage in Milan for the 10th test they have played against Italy - in the 10th different venue.

The All Blacks visited San Siro - a 85,000 capacity venue and one of the best-known venues in the world - in 2008, on an adidas promotion after their northern tour.

Dan Carter, Richie McCaw and 13 other All Blacks mingled with the likes of Brazilian AC Milan stars Ronaldinho and Kaka.

The matches against Italy, and tests against England at Twickenham on November 21; France in Marseille on November 28, and against the Barbarians back at Twickenham on December 5 were confirmed on Wednesdays.

It was likely the All Blacks would also play two tests prior to those dates, against Australia, probably in Tokyo, then against Wales in Cardiff on November 7.
