Updated match schedule available for OFC U-17 Championship in Fiji

posted in: Events, News

The match schedule for the OFC U-17 Championship in Fiji has been updated following the withdrawal of Papua New Guinea.

The matches begin on Wednesday January 11, 2023, with New Zealand meeting New Caledonia in a Group B game (4pm NZT).

The exit of PNG from the 17-day tournament in Fiji means only nine countries will take part, with the two finalists automatically qualifying for November’s FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru.
