Auckland City nominated for Club World Cup

Oceania Football Confederation has nominated Auckland City FC for the FIFA Club World Cup.

OFC had to nominate a club following the cancellation of the OFC Champions League for yet another season due to COVID-19 restrictions across member nations.

Suva and Rewa were nominated to represent Fiji in the now shelved regional competition.

As a result, OFC’s Executive Committee nominated a representative from the Confederation based strictly on sporting merit principles.

FIFA have agreed that these principles took several sporting criteria into consideration and provided a fair opportunity for clubs to be selected.

The sporting merit principles took into consideration the final placing of every Member Association’s National League champion and runner-up in each OFC Champions League between 2016 and 2020.

The results were then combined to determine an overall ranking.

This ranking was then applied to the clubs nominated by their Member Association as the champion or runner-up from their respective National Leagues, to qualify for the OFC Champions League 2021.
