The 2016 OFC Futsal Championship was the 11th edition of the OFC Futsal Championship, the annual international futsal championship organised by the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) for the men's national teams of Oceania. The tournament was held in Suva, Fiji between 8–13 February 2016.[1]

The tournament was originally to be held in Papeete, Tahiti, but was moved to Fiji after Tahiti withdrew.[2] The 2015 tournament, which was originally scheduled to be held in Tahiti between 1–8 August 2015, was not played.[3]

Same as previous editions held on the same year as the FIFA Futsal World Cup, the tournament acted as the OFC qualifiers for the World Cup. The winner of the tournament qualified for the 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Colombia as the OFC representative.[4]

Solomon Islands were crowned as champions for the fifth time on 13 February 2016, sealing their qualification to the World Cup.[5]
