FIFA is thrilled to announce a new partnership that will see FIFA+ become the official home for all Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) competitions for the next two years, with all matches streamed globally. Already the global streaming home for all New Zealand Football content, FIFA+ is committed to shining a spotlight on the unique flair and potential of the OFC, and helping foster the growth of the game across the Pacific. At the FIFA World Cup 26™, Oceania will have a guaranteed qualification slot, and after serving as joint hosts of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™, interest in football in Oceania continues to grow. The partnership commenced with the highly anticipated Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Oceania Qualifiers held in Apia, Samoa, throughout February. All matches at the qualifying tournament were streamed live on FIFA+, including the final which saw New Zealand book their berth as Oceania’s women’s football representative at Paris 2024.
