Summary

The Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) is one of six continental confederations of international football, with 13 members, 11 of which are full members and two associate members not affiliated with FIFA. Australia, the OFC's largest and most successful nation, left to join the Asian Football Confederation in 2006, leaving New Zealand as the largest federation within the OFC. OFC is predominantly made up of island nations, where association football is not the most popular sport, with low GDP and low population meaning very little money is generated by the OFC nations. The OFC has little influence in the wider football world. OFC is the only confederation to have not had at least one international title, the best result being Australia making the final of the 1997 FIFA Confederations Cup. The President of OFC is Lambert Maltock since April 2018, while the Vice Presidents are Thierry Ariiotima, Kapi Natto John, and Lord Ve'ehala, and Franck Castillo is the General Secretary. The confederation is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand. The confederation formed in 1966, as a result of Australia and New Zealand's failed attempts to join the Asian Football Confederation. In 1996, FIFA confirmed OFC as a full confederation and granted it a seat on the FIFA executive. Throughout its history, there have been numerous calls to either merge the OFC and AFC or dissolve the OFC and have its members join the AFC in order to form an Asia-Pacific Football Confederation.
