Oceanian Nations Cup


This tournament began in 1973 as the "Oceania Cup". A second edition took place in 1980, then the tournament was discontinued.

In 1996 it reappeared as the "Oceania Nations Cup" and served as a qualifier for the Confederations Cup. With Oceania Football Confederation now being a separate FIFA confederation, it is supposed to be played biannually in the future.

In the early editions non-FIFA members were allowed to participate. The New Hebrides became Vanuatu after gaining independence in 1980.
