New Zealand will go to the tournament to defend the title they won in 2019.
Winning the tournament provides automatic qualification to the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be expanded from 16 to 24 teams next year.
In the OFC U-19 Women’s Championship, the three group winners, three second-placed teams and the two best third-placed teams will qualify for the quarter-finals.
