AUCKLAND � Futsal fans in New Zealand will be able to follow the Futsalwhites at the 2010 OFC Futsal Championships in Fiji after Oceania Football Confederation announced plans to stream the Fiji-based tournament live online.

OFC has teamed up with Fiji�s MAI TV to provide extensive coverage of the round-robin competition, which features Fiji, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tuvalu and Vanuatu, and will be held at the Vodafone Arena in Suva from August 8 to 14.

All matches will be broadcast free-to-air within the host country and a one-hour highlights show will be sent out to OFC broadcast partners around the region but 2010 marks the first occasion an OFC competition is streamed live online with access available through oceaniafootball.com and maitv.com.fj.

OFC General Secretary Tai Nicholas says the agreement shows OFC�s ongoing commitment to deliver quality coverage throughout the region.

�Broadcast of the OFC Futsal Championship follows on from unprecedented FIFA World Cup coverage across the Pacific thanks to cooperation between OFC, MAI TV and SBS Australia,� says Nicholas.

Over 70 per cent of those surveyed reported having MAI TV in their homes, which CEO Richard Broadbridge believes is an impressive figure for a TV station in just its third year of operation.

MAI TV CEO Richard Broadbridge says the fast paced nature of futsal makes for great television viewing and that the online streaming was a key focus of the company�s expansion plans.

�We recognise the need to deliver content direct to consumers so we�ve developed the technology to do just that. Web streaming will be an essential part of our futsal coverage and we�re delighted to be working with OFC on this project,� says Broadbridge.

Further details of broadcast times and online streaming will be announced by OFC prior to the championship.

How come they are playing in a Blue strip?
What other New Zealand teams play in Royal Blue as a 1st or 2nd strip?
What happened to the White shirts and Black shorts I've seen in photos when they went to play in China?

That's a photo from two years ago, the last time they went to the OFC Championships.

To my knowledge the only overseas places the Futsalwhites have played in are Vanuatu 1999, Australia 2004 and now Fiji 2008/2010 ( OFC World Cup Qualifers and OFC Championship) They have never played in China.
 
I think you are getting confused with the "other NZ team" from Christchurch ( Vikings Futsal via Queensland, Australia) They play in the AMF Futsal World Cup Finals in Columbia ( later this year or early next year) while the NZF backed, Futsalwhites play in the FIFA competition. There are two world organisations for futsal ( FIFA and AMF) which divides most nations ie Australia.
 
It is easy to get confused, though!
 
PS: the blue strip is Nike

I think both sides are comfortable with the pattern of play, we look pretty good on the break while they like to keep possession.
