Fiji to host OFC Women's Nations Cup

Fiji will host the 2022 OFC Women's Nations Cup from 13-30 of July with nine teams competing to earn a spot for the FIFA Women's World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™. 
 
Hosts Fiji, Cook Islands, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga and Vanuatu will battle it out to join New Zealand – who have already qualified for the World Cup. 
 
American Samoa are unable to take part due to the on-going challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
The tournament format will see three groups each made up of three nations play each other once, before the top two sides from each group, as well as the two best third-placed teams from the group stage, advance through to the quarter-finals. 
 
The draw for the OFC Women's Nations Cup will take place on Tuesday, May 10 and see competing nations split into three pots based on their FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking as of March 25, 2022. 
 
The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will all be single-leg matches, with the two losing semi-finalists also contesting a playoff for third place.
