Under the auspices of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC), CIES held various discussions last week with the prospect of organising the FIFA/CIES Sport Management Programme in all the countries of the continent.

The representatives of the University of South Pacific in Suva (Fiji), the 'Université de Nouvelle-Caledonie' in Noumea and the Auckland University of Technology have shown a great interest in offering such an education programme to football and other sport managers in the region.
