The Women’s Olympic Football Tournament – Oceania Qualifier, is the first competition of the year and will be held in Samoa in February, with the winner qualifying for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Futsal is again a prominent fixture on the calendar with the inaugural OFC Futsal Women’s Nations Cup being hosted in the Solomon Islands and the OFC Futsal Men’s Champions League returning for the first time since 2019, hosted by New Caledonia.

The second edition of the OFC Women’s Champions League will be held in the Solomon Islands in March, with the OFC Men’s Champions League tournament being played in Tahiti in May.
