The 2016 OFC U-17 Women's Championship was the 3rd edition of the OFC U-17 Women's Championship, the biennial international youth football championship organised by the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) for the women's under-17 national teams of Oceania. The tournament was held in the Cook Islands between 13–23 January 2016.[1] The tournament, which returned after the previous edition in 2014 was cancelled, was originally scheduled to be held between 13–28 September 2015.[2]

Same as previous editions, the tournament acted as the OFC qualifiers for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. The winner of the tournament qualified for the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Jordan as the OFC representative.[3]

New Zealand were crowned as champions for the third consecutive time on 24 January 2016, sealing their qualification to the World Cup.[4]

Teams

A total of nine OFC member national teams entered the tournament.[1]

Group stage

The draw for the group stage was held on 19 October 2015 at the OFC Headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand.[1] The nine teams were divided into one group of five teams and one group of four teams, with each group played in round-robin format. The top two teams of each group advance to the semi-finals.

After the withdrawal of the Solomon Islands from the tournament, the Group A fixtures were re-drawn on 3 November 2015 at the OFC Headquarters.[6] As a result, the tournament also starts four days later from its original start date of 9 January 2016.

All times are local, CKT (UTC−10).
