The OFC Futsal Championship is the main national futsal competition of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) nations. It was first held in 1992.

The competition was initially held every four years. From 2008 onwards, however, it became an annual tournament.[1]

Australia won every edition of the competition until it left the Oceania Football Confederation in 2006. Solomon Islands have won the three editions of the tournament which have taken place since then[2] - including a decisive 8-1 victory over Fiji in the final of the 2009 edition.[3] It is a qualification for the FIFA Futsal World Cup.

The original name was the OFC Futsal Championship, from 2019, the tournament will be known as the OFC Futsal Nations Cup.[4]
