Tour chronology
Previous tour 2012
Next tour 2014

On 23 May 2013, it was announced by the New Zealand Rugby Union that following a successful tour in 2012, the Māori All Blacks will tour North America to take on Canada and the United States.[1] The fixtures would not be the first time the national sides have met the invitational side, as the teams participated in the now defunct Churchill Cup, and the Māoris faced Canada during their 2012 tour where the Māoris were victorious 32-19. The head coach for the tour was announced as Taranaki's head coach Colin Cooper.[2] He was assisted by Crusaders assistant coach Tabai Matson, and former All Black Carl Hoeft as the scrumage coach.

Hika Elliot and Piri Weepu sustained injuries during the North American Tour and were replaced by Quentin MacDonald and Chris Smylie.[6]
