The Oceania Football Confederation has released its 2019 competition calendar with Fiji hosting two of its main event next year.
The OFC Under-23 Championship will be played in Fiji mid next year.
The OFC Champions League will get the year’s events underway with Cook Islands taking on hosting duties for the Qualifier which takes place at the end of January.
The group stage of the same competition will be held in February through to early March with Vanuatu, Fiji, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia all selected to host one of the four groups each.
The two changes in the competitions will see the quarter-finals held on a home-and-away basis while the final will become a one-off match.
The OFC Beach Soccer Championship, which was postponed from 2017, will take place in Tahiti in June with six teams confirmed to attend while the Futsal Championship will take place in New Caledonia.
The final competition on the calendar is scheduled for December with another round of OFC Champions League Qualifier action due to be held in Samoa.
