Fans to benefit from OFC’s partnership with football streaming platform FIFA+

A ground-breaking partnership with the FIFA+ streaming platform will help grow the audience for OFC matches, and showcase the region’s football for fans worldwide.

Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) has agreed FIFA+ will be the globally exclusive, official streaming home for all OFC competitions for two years.

The partnership involves OFC’s live streaming, data, and media rights and is instrumental in expanding OFC’s commercial programme.

The partnership began with the February’s Women’s Olympic Qualifier tournament in Samoa in which every game was broadcast live and free on FIFA+.

The partnership will lead to fans being able to watch more games live and free in the Oceania region.

‘This partnership marks a new era for Oceania football’

OFC General Secretary Franck Castillo says the partnership is substantial, taking football in Oceania to the next level.

“In the last five years, OFC has gone to great lengths to grow football coverage across the Pacific and provide quality broadcast production standards to all fans.

“As a testament to these efforts, our social media following has increased by 110% and live streaming views by 200% since 2019. We have rallied media rights in the broadcast space and expanded our distribution from four regional TV broadcasters to 26.

“Now OFC is taking its strategy to the next level by providing live, easily accessible football to the world, making Oceania football global with FIFA+.

“This partnership with FIFA+ marks a new era for Oceania football.

“It’s a monumental step towards realising our dreams and showcasing the talents of our region to a global audience. We are excited about the opportunities this collaboration unlocks and the new horizons it opens for our players, teams, and fans.

“We have also expanded commercially through selling our live streaming, media and data rights for the next two years – 2024 and 2025; this is a major step forward for us in the commercial space.”

FIFA+ will highlight OFC tournaments, players, and stories, contributing to the growth of football globally and spotlighting Oceania football’s unique flair and potential.

NZ Football’s partnership with FIFA+

In September 2023, NZ Football announced a long-term partnership with FIFA+ to provide live streaming of games, including international matches, men’s and women’s National Leagues, Ford Futsal Superleagues and later stages of the Kate Sheppard Cup and Chatham Cup.
