Tourism New ZealandFIFA U-20 World Cup host city New Plymouth has given football fans a taste of what’s to come when the tournament kicks off in host cities around New Zealand on 30 May.


The stunning and international award winning Te Rewa Rewa Bridge across the Waiwhakaiho River is rapidly becoming one of Taranaki’s iconic places and offers a spectacularly framed view of Mount Taranaki.
FIFA U-20 World Cup host city New Plymouth has given football fans a taste of what’s to come when the tournament kicks off in host cities around New Zealand on 30 May.


In the video – created to celebrate the impending tournament – one of New Plymouth’s most accomplished chefs treated locals to tasty dishes from each of the four nations that are based in the city during their pool games.


The speciality dishes from Brazil, Hungary, Korea DPR and Nigeria were served up, leaving the blind-tasting diners to guess the nation that each dish came from. And it seems the people of New Plymouth are more than ready to welcome some of the brightest stars in the world, especially if their sense of taste is anything to go by.


While all taste-testers enjoyed delights such as Brazilian dessert quindim and Korea’s samgyeopsal, it was the Hungarian langos that proved to be a real hit with the diners.



The clip was shot at New Plymouth cookery school Cook, Learn, Love and the food prepared by former fine dining chef Helen Flitcroft, whose talents and love of refined and uncomplicated French cuisine have taken her from the French Alps to Australia before settling in New Plymouth.


With a penchant for local produce and a keen advocate of ‘paddock to plate’ Helen offers cooking classes with a difference to those looking to enchant their taste buds and enhance their skills.

As the tournament – the second biggest in FIFA’s calendar – approaches, the good people of New Plymouth have come up with another video clip promoting their beautiful region complete with football finesse.



The trip takes the footballer to Mount Egmont National Park where the spectacular snow-capped Mt Taranaki can be seen in the distance. He continues keeping the ball in check as he crosses the award-winning Te Rewa Rewa Bridge – a bridge that represents a breaking wave and a whale skeleton, and along the Coastal Walkway – a 12.7km sea-edge promenade that follows the city’s impressive coastline and world class surf.

The journey ends at Stadium Taranaki – the stadium where dreams will either be dashed or come true for the four teams who will make New Plymouth their home during the early part of the tournament.


The city will host six games – five pool matches and a Round of 16 clash – from 1 June 2015, and this region and its people are ready to welcome the world.
