OFC Champions League draw confirmed

The OFC Champions League has undergone a change of format for the 2015 edition and will see 12 of the Pacific’s finest club teams from seven OFC member association countries contest the right to be crowned kings of Oceania from 11 to 26 April in Fiji.
Like last season, the 12 clubs will be divided into three groups of four teams with the group winners along with the best placed runner-up advancing to the semi-finals. The winners of the semi-final will contest the OFC Champions League Final on April 26 at ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Group A will be staged at Govind Park, Ba, and comprises Champions League regulars Ba, last year’s semi-finalists AS Pirae of Tahiti, New Caledonian newcomers FC Gaitcha and Preliminary winners Lupe Ole Soaga of Samoa.
Six-time winners and FIFA Club World Cup bronze medallists Auckland City FC headline Group B where they face a tricky section that includes Vanuatu champions Tafea FC, host club Suva and the yet to be determined champion club of the Solomon Islands. Group B and C will be staged at the impressive ANZ Stadium in Suva.
Making their OFC Champions League debut in arguably the toughest section in the competition are Kiwi outfit and current ASB Premiership table toppers Team Wellington. The Capital Men face two-times runners-up and OFC President’s Cup runner’s up Amicale of Vanuatu while AS Tefana of Tahiti return to the top tier after a three year absence. 2010 OFC Champions League winners Hekari United round off the group.
Both semi-finals and the final will be played at ANZ Stadium in Suva. h
