The league champions from Fiji, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, Tahiti and Vanuatu will fight it out over four hectic days, to crown the first Oceania champion.

The tournament kicks off Thursday 5th December at 16.00 local New Zealand time. The busiest days are the middle ones with both 6th and 7th seeing every team play twice a day.

The teams will then be pitted against each other based on the league table after those five games, with the top two contesting the grand final.

“Futsal is a very popular across the Pacific and the recent OFC Futsal Nations Cup has proved how competitive the teams are across our member associations,” OFC Competitions Director Chris Kemp told the OFC website.

“I’m confident the first ever OFC Champions League tournament will again deliver a keenly contested, entertaining and high quality competition throughout the four days,”

The competing teams will be AFF Futsal (New Zealand), AS Pirae (Tahiti) D’York Street (Vanuatu), Kooline FC (Solomon Islands), Suva FC (Fiji) and AS PTT Noumea (New Caledonia).
