The 2013 OFC U-17 Championship was the 15th edition of the OFC's Under 17 championship, the biennial football championship of the Oceanian Confederation. All matches took place at Chapuis stadium, Luganville in Vanuatu from 17 to 27 April.[1] 6 teams contested the final round of the Championship after the Solomon Islands Football Federation withdrew, as it could only financially support its Beach Soccer and Fustal sides in national competition.[2]

As winners, New Zealand qualified as Oceania's representative for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Qualification

5 teams 'pre-qualified' for the competition (before the Solomon Islands withdrawal), with the final team being decided through a preliminary round hosted by Samoa in late January 2013.

Preliminary round

A preliminary competition was required to find the Sixth and final place in the competition. The mini-tournament was hosted by the Samoan Football Federation between the dates of 22 and 26 January 2013.[3]
