AUCKLAND, New Zealand - The venue for Auckland City FC's pre-season friendly with Eastern Suburbs AFC has been switched.

The clash with the Lilywhites was originally pencilled in for Albany but will now be played at Riverhills Park.

Eastern Suburbs AFC won their second national league title and their first since 1971 when they downed Team Wellington in last season's ISPS Handa Premiership grand final at North Harbour Stadium.

Sunday's match will be Auckland City FC's first under new coach Jose Figueira.
