Oceania Football Confederation is an umbrella organisation which encompasses all of the national football associations in the Oceania region. OFC has eleven member associations which it supports both financially and logistically through a number of programmes and initiatives. Internationally, it also works alongside similar regional confederations to support FIFA, football’s international governing body.
OFC has a dual role in Oceania; it services and administers football throughout the region and also uses the game as a tool for social development.
