The New Zealand Under-23 Football Team, informally known as the "Oly-Whites", represents New Zealand Football and New Zealand in international Under-23 football (soccer) events, such as the Summer Olympics.

The Oly-Whites qualified for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing after winning the OFC Preliminary Competition in Fiji. Thus Beijing saw the first Olympic appearance for a New Zealand men's football team.
