Auckland, OFC: The Oceania Football Confederation has today confirmed the match schedule and dates for the 2003 OFC World Futsal Qualifying Tournament which will be held in Canberra, Australia.

After the unavailability of the original venue in Sydney, the OFC approved the tournament moving to Canberra. The 2003 OFC World Futsal Qualifying Tournament will be held from 20-25 October 2003 at the Australian Institute of Sport arena in Canberra.

Hosts Australia will compete with Fiji, New Zealand and Vanuatu for the sole qualifying berth, representing the OFC at the FIFA Futsal World Championship 2004 in Chinese Taipei.

The 2003 OFC World Futsal Qualifying Tournament will be held in a double round robin format on a league system over six match days. Under this format, each team will play the other teams twice.
