A Brief History Of The OFC Nations Cup

The Oceania Cup is the biennial competition of the Oceanian nations. It has been held every two years since 1996 by the Oceania Football Confederation, before 1996 there were two other tournaments at irregular intervals. Participating nations are Australia, New Zealand and various Pacific Islands. The latter have to qualify in a preliminary tournament.

The confederation was formed in 1966 and the founding members are the Australian Soccer Association, New Zealand Soccer, and Fiji Football Association. The other members are: American Samoa Football Association, Cook Islands Football Association, Federation Tahitienne de Football, Papua New Guinea Football Association, Samoa Football Federation, Solomon Islands Football Federation, Tonga Football Association and Vanuatu Football Federation.
OFC became a fully-fledged confederation in 1996.

Australia joined the Asian Football Confederation on 1st January 2006, ceasing to be a member of OFC, leaving only New Zealand as big power in the continent. The new edition of the tournament was played in 2008, who was also part of 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification, without a host nation and with four teams playing each other at home and away in one group.
