The tournament was to have been held in Suva from March 12-22nd, but is now likely to take place in Auckland, where OFC's offices are based.

The CEO of the Fiji Football Association, Bob Kumar, says Oceania Football informed them of the decision and they have accepted it.

He says the Fiji team's preparations will not change apart from the knoweldge that they won't be playing in front of a home crowd.
