The OFC Congress is the largest gathering of football officials in Oceania with all 11 OFC Member Associations represented at its meetings.

The OFC Congress is also the highest decision-making body within the organisation and makes key decisions relating to the governing statutes and the method by which they are implemented and applied.

The OFC Congress is normally held every two years, but more recently it has taken to meeting annually through extraordinary meetings. By holding regular meetings, the Congress has been able to have a wider influence over a growing number of issues.

The OFC President is responsible for presiding over the OFC Congress and must ensure that debates are properly conducted. Each Member Associations has one vote, regardless of its size or footballing strength.

At the conclusion of the Congress, the president is responsible for ensuring any decision which have been passed, are implemented by the OFC General Secretariat.
