The Phoenix are exploring the possibility of a pre-season tour to India.
Gareth Morgan, one of the Phoenix's owners, said yesterday that the trip was "getting closer and closer to being consummated."
The idea came from retired Phoenix player Tim Brown, who represented the New Zealand Professional Footballers Association in India in May. The Phoenix are also expected to confirm a pre-season game against the Central Coast Mariners, in Christchurch, in September.
The Phoenix kick off the A-League on October 6 and remain on the hunt for an overseas striker.
Mirjan Pavlovic has been loaned out to play in Sydney during the pre-season.
