The New Zealand national futsal team, nicknamed the Futsal Whites, is the representative side for New Zealand in international futsal and is governed by New Zealand Football (NZF).[2] The nickname is a reference to the New Zealand national football team which is known as the All Whites, which in turn is one of many national team nicknames related to the All Blacks.

A 12-man Futsal Whites squad was named on 7 June 2010[3] to compete in the 2010 OFC Futsal Championship and will be coached by Matt Chandler, who also coaches Hawke's Bay United in the ASB Premiership
