The first OFC Women’s Champions League has been postponed from March till June.

The nine-day tournament will be staged in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, and is expected to feature Eastern Suburbs as the New Zealand representative club.

In its announcement, the Oceania Football Confederation said the tournament had been rescheduled from March 9-18 to June 1-10.

“The OFC and Papua New Guinea Football Association (PNGFA) have been working together on the logistics for the competition, and have been waiting for the visa process to be completed impacting on further travel arrangements.

“Following consultation with the OFC Executive Committee, the decision has been taken to postpone the competition until June,” OFC said.

The establishment of the competition is expected to provide a pathway for an OFC club to represent the region at a FIFA Women’s Club World Cup in 2025.
