2014 FIFA World Cup qualification – OFC First Round
The winner of this qualifying stage will advance to the 2012 OFC Nations Cup, scheduled for Fiji from 1–12 June 2012, to join the other seven teams which receive a bye into the second Round. The Nations Cup will serve as the second round of qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The qualification event was to be the football competition at the 2011 Pacific Games in Noumea, New Caledonia. However, in June 2011, the format was amended, and the Pacific Games are no longer part of the qualification process.
The July 2011 FIFA World Rankings, as well as other "sporting considerations" deemed appropriate, was used in determining ranking of the entrants.
