Waqanidrola is Fiji's ambassador to OFC

Former Rewa defender Naomi Waqanidrola is Fiji's lone female ambassador to the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC).

She was named Fiji’s ambassador last week when OFC launched its first strategic plan dedicated to women’s football.

Waqanidrola alongside other 11 Women’s Football Ambassadors, one for each Member Association will carry out the values of women’s football across Oceania.   

OFC Women’s Football Strategy 2027 aims to increase the development, growth, sustainability, and professionalisation of the game, leading to greater performances on the world stage.   

The OFC Women’s Football Strategy will lay the foundations for achieving OFC’s goal of having two competitive teams at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2027.  

Providing direction, purpose and guidelines for women’s football in Oceania, this strategy will also assist with the creation of an inclusive footballing culture, which inspires and empowers females across all sectors. 

OFC President Lambert Maltock said it is a crucial time for women’s football development.   

The strategy has been built on five key pillars:  

-An Equal Oceania – Participation: Breaking down the barriers  

-A Visible Oceania – Visibility: Raising the awareness of possibilities  

-A Stronger Oceania – Education: Building the foundations  

-An Elevated Oceania – Performance: Raising the standards  

-An Inclusive Oceania – Culture: Leading by example
