Venue change for final U-20 matches

The tournament began last Thursday and has been taking place at Centre Park in Mangere, which hosted all three days of group stage action. But in the interests of player safety and to ensure the best possible playing surface is available for these vitally important games, OFC has taken the decision to move the remaining fixtures to a new venue.
The semi-finals will take place on North Harbour Stadium’s outer oval while the 3rd/4th play-off and grand final will be staged in the main stadium.
The first match to be played at the new venue will be the first semi-final tomorrow, which will feature Group A winners Vanuatu taking on Group B runners-up Solomon Islands. The second semi-final will follow shortly afterwards on the same day and will see Group B winners New Zealand meet Group A runners-up Fiji.
The 3rd/4th play-off and the grand final will be held on Friday 29 April.
The winner of the OFC U-20 Championship will go on to represent Oceania at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Colombia during July and August.
