Fiji to host OFC Women's Olympic Qualifiers

Auckland, 5 Feb 2004: The Oceania Football Confederation has announced today that the 2004 OFC Women's Olympic Qualifying soccer tournament will now be held in Ba, Fiji from 2-6 March.

Late withdrawals from the tournament prompted the shift in venue with three teams now confirmed to participate; Fiji (host), Australia and Papua New Guinea.

All matches will be played at Govind Park with the winner decided on overall points based on a single round robin, league system format which will be in force for this tournament.

The OFC Champion will receive direct entry to represent Oceania at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games women's football tournament in August.
