OFC Nations Cup

The OFC Nations Cup is the biennial football competition held among the Oceania Football Confederation member nations. It has been held every two years since 1996 by the OFC; before 1996 there were two other tournaments held at irregular intervals, under the name Oceania Nations Cup.

Historically, a very large gulf separated Australia from the smaller island competitors. Little attention is paid to the tournament by the rest of the football world. Australia's top players, based in Europe, are generally not even selected on the basis that they would refuse to play in what they regard as a meaningless event - allowing New Zealand to occasionally embarrass its larger neighbour. The competition however has increased in importance due to the fact it now qualifies the winner for the lucrative Confederations Cup.

Australia ceased to be a member of the OFC on January 1, 2006, having elected to join the Asian Football Confederation, and hence will no longer be involved in this competition.
