The next Women’s World Cup final in 2021 will be played under floodlights at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
There will be 31 matches played in the competition between 6 February and 7 March, with Eden Park in Auckland hosting the opening weekend.
Hamilton and Tauranga will be the semi-final venues, with Wellington and Dunedin also staging matches.
England are the defending champions following their memorable nine-run win over India at Lord’s in 2017.
The announcement of the venues for next year’s event was followed by a game of beach cricket involving New Zealand captain Sophie Devine, team-mates Suzie Bates and Amelia Kerr and Kiwi Test players Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls.
Devine commented: “Last time New Zealand hosted the World Cup in 2000 it was all out at Lincoln University, which is a great venue but the opportunity to play at some of the best cricket grounds, not only in New Zealand but in the world, is a really special opportunity,”
