The Black Ferns have announced a busy test schedule in 2020, before next year's Rugby World Cup.
The reigning world champions will play eight tests this year, including seven in New Zealand.
Three of the fixtures have been confirmed, while the further five tests - including venues, locations and kick-off times - will be announced in coming weeks.
On July 18, Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium will see the Black Ferns face the United States, in a doubleheader that includes the All Blacks playing Scotland.
In August, the O'Reilly Cup (formerly the Laurie O'Reilly Memorial Trophy) tests will see the Black Ferns play Australia at Melbourne's Marvel Stadium on August 8 and Wellington's Sky Stadium on August 15.
Both trans-Tasman tests will be doubleheader events, with the All Blacks contesting the Bledisloe Cup.
NZ Rugby head of women's rugby Cate Sexton said the busy schedule was good with the World Cup - which will be held in New Zealand - looming.
"This is an extra special year for local fans, because in the past, most Black Ferns test matches have been played overseas," Saxton said.
"We've seen a massive groundswell of support for the team from around New Zealand in recent times. This year, fans have more opportunities than ever before to cheer on the Black Ferns in person."
Meanwhile, five new players feature the Black Ferns' 31-strong contracted squad for 2020.
Auckland duo Saphire Abraham and Patricia Maliepo join Canterbury's Chelsea Bremner, Bay of Plenty's Kelsie Wills and Counties Manukau's Langi Veainu as rookies,while fullback Hazel Tubic, who last played for the Black Ferns at the 2017 World Cup, returns after a stint playing in Japan.
Black Ferns coach Glenn Moore said the newly contracted players were all young and talented, had impressed with their work ethic and skill, and would push for spots in the 2021 World Cup squad.
"We need constant high-level competition to ensure the team is in top form for next year," Moore said.
"Every year, the standard of rugby - not just here, but around the world - is growing and we need to be ahead of the game.
"In the past couple of years, we've widened our player pool, introduced new athletes to the Black Ferns environment and given them test-match exposure. In 2021, we will be able to draw on a stronger, experienced and match-fit group of players."
