The All Whites have confirmed they will play Oman as a second warm-up, before the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 intercontinental playoff against Costa Rica.
Ranked 101st in the world, New Zealand will face the 75th-ranked Middle Eastern side on June 10 (NZ time) at Doha, Qatar, but the game will be played behind closed doors and will not be broadcast live.
The match follows the first friendly against Peru on June 6 at Barcelona, Spain, which will be the first time the team have played in front of a crowd since 2019, with 25,000 tickets already sold.
"We are really pleased to lock in this match against another high-quality opposition ahead of a massive game against Costa Rica," said head coach Danny Hay.
"It is vital that we challenge ourselves ahead of the intercontinental playoff, but also have the opportunity to try things out. These two games against Peru and Oman should allow us to do both.
"Having the opportunity to give minutes to members of the wider squad is really important, as you never know what can happen during a game.
"We need the entire squad match fit, battle-hardened and pushing to make the starting XI against Costa Rica."
Kickoff time and venue for the game will be announced over coming days.

Preview: New Zealand is somewhat infamous for signing up for shorter series. But with a longer campaign at hand, Kane Williamson is surely looking forward to the challenge of a three-Test series against England that starts on Thursday, 2 June.
The economics of the game mean although New Zealand are the reigning world Test champions, they are rarely involved in anything more than a two-match campaign, even when they are at home as a result of having one of the smaller populations among leading cricket countries.
Indeed the last time New Zealand were involved in anything more than a two-Test series was when they suffered a 3-0 defeat in Australia in 2019/20.
But last year New Zealand hit the ground running to win a two-match campaign away to England 1-0 before, just over a week later, they defeated India in the inaugural World Test Championship final at Southampton.
New Zealand face an England team that are at the bottom of the World Test Championship table, having won just one of their last 17 matches at this level.
England, however, have recalled James Anderson and Stuart Broad, their two most successful Test bowlers of all time, for this match.
Even though Anderson has taken 640 Test wickets and Broad 537, the pair were both controversially omitted from England's series loss in the West Indies earlier this year.
