If that was not enough it was also revealed that Cricketweb had been accepted by the Oceania Confederation to participate in the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers, starting with the 2007 South Pacific Games Football Tournament to be held in Vanuatu.
The top 3 sides in the South Pacific Games will then join New Zealand in a home and away round-robin tournament on FIFA match dates in 2007 and 2008.
The winner of this final group will also be crowned OFC Nations Cup champions, and will also be included in the final round of Asian World Cup qualification.
"This is a massive boost for the nation in such a short space of time. For our players to have the opportunity to participate in these tournaments will be a huge boost not only to their confidence but it will raise the skill level of the whole nation" CWFA Chairman Brendon Goff Snr told reporters today.
Full dates are yet to be confirmed by the OFC..
