The Oceania Football Confederation (OFC), the governing body for soccer in the region, has partnered with FIFA+, the global governing body’s free streaming service, to boost Oceania soccer exposure worldwide.

The deal, which runs from 2024 to 2025, covers the OFC’s live streaming, data, and media rights and makes FIFA+ the official exclusive global home for all OFC competitions for the next two years, with all of the matches being streamed globally.

FIFA+ will also highlight OFC tournaments, players, and stories as part of the deal.

OFC general secretary Franck Castillo said: “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+.
