Head of Women’s Football at the Fédération Tahitienne de Football Stéphanie Spielmann said with eight national team players based in France and one in America, the tour will be an important opportunity to get everyone together.  

“The team needs to leave Oceania to gain experience,” Spielmann said.  

The Polynesian side will play Luxembourg twice, once in Luxembourg and once in France, before taking on Andorra in the final friendly.

“This is a great opportunity for us to play against these two European countries,” said Spielmann.

“This will allow us to make progress and best target the areas to be worked on.” 

Outside of the scheduled matches, the Tahiti team will also meet with local clubs and take part in cultural exchanges as part of the trip.
