In July, Papua New Guinea won the OFC Women’s Nations Cup and earned a spot in the Play-Off Tournament. PNG beat Vanuatu, Tahiti, Tonga, Samoa, and the host country, Fiji, to win the overall competition for the first time.

Their first opponent in Group C is Panama, which made it by coming in third in Group B of the 2022 CONCACAF Women’s Championship, behind Canada and Costa Rica. They are ranked 57th in the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Rankings, seven spots below PNG at number 50.

Potential final opponents Chinese Taipei is ranked number 40 in the world, and Paraguay is ranked number 51. As the runner-up in the 2022 Women’s Asian Cup play-offs, Chinese Taipei earned a spot in the Play-Off Tournament. Paraguay was able to do this by coming in fourth at the Copa América Femenina in 2022.

The Play-Off Tournament will be held in Auckland and Hamilton, New Zealand, from February 18–23, 2023. Ten teams from six FIFA confederations will compete.

Papua New Guinea and the other team in Group C are in Group A, along with Cameroon, Thailand, and Portugal. Senegal, Haiti, and Chile are in Group B. Ten teams are competing for three spots in the World Cup next year.

New Zealand will also play in the tournament. They will play two friendly games against Portugal and two games against guest nations that haven’t been chosen yet. If Papua New Guinea loses their semi-final match against Panama, they will also play a friendly match on February 23 in Auckland against the losers of the other Group C match.
