The 2017 OFC Champions League Final was the final of the 2017 OFC Champions League, the 16th edition of the Oceania Cup, Oceania's premier club football tournament organized by the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC), and the 11th season under the current OFC Champions League name.

The final was contested in two-legged home-and-away format between two New Zealand teams, Auckland City and Team Wellington. The first leg was hosted by Auckland City at Kiwitea Street, Auckland on 30 April 2017, while the second leg was hosted by Team Wellington at David Farrington Park, Wellington on 7 May 2017.[1] The winner would earn the right to represent the OFC at the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup, entering at the qualifying play-off round.

Auckland City won the first leg 3–0 and the second leg 2–0, to defeat Team Wellington 5–0 on aggregate and won the OFC Champions League seven years in a row and nine times in total.[2][3]
