Rewa in tough Champs League group

Rewa has been drawn in a tough group for the OFC Champions League.

The Fijian champions are in Group B with 9-time champions Auckland City, Cook Islands’ representative Nikao Sokattak FC and current champions New Caledonia's Hienghène Sport.

Tahiti’s AS Vénus have been drawn alongside Vanuatu’s Galaxy FC, Papua New Guinea’s Lae City FC and first-time entrants Central Coast FC in Group A.

The group and knockout stages of the OFC Champions League will be contested in NZ in August.

The winners and runners-up from each group will face each other in the semi-finals. The winners of the semi-finals will progress to the final, with the winner crowned champions of Oceania.

The last time a club in the OFC region were crowned continental champions was in 2019, making the return of this marquee competition even more anticipated than usual.

The champions will then have the chance to test themselves against some of the biggest clubs in world football by advancing to the FIFA Club World Cup later this year.
