I'm about to apply for tickets but will only bother if NZ are involved.

I have no idea what the qualification process is for this, can anyone help me out?

Not quite sure about the qualification process but pretty sure Oceania gets 1 full spot, so you would hope we would be able to get there

looking at the OFC qualification for the Beijing olympics it was a week long tournament, each team playing each other team once, team with the most points qualifies.
Countries were;
NZ
Vanuatu
Fiji
Soloman Islands
Cook Islands
PNG

Cheers, seems likely they will be there then.

Now I've just got to hope they are playing in the capital and not up north somewhere. This process really is a ridiculous lottery.

Not necessarily , it also depends on the whether the NZOC let them go, athletes and teams are supposed to meet a criteria I believe of being in the top 16 in the world. Though in saying that they did let us go to Beijing.

You couldnt rank U23s football though, there isnt nearly enough football to be able to do that. Although you wouldnt think we would come close

The OFC Men�s Olympic Football Tournament Qualifier will take place in Lautoka, Fiji, from 12 � 27 March 2012, with the following teams participating: American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. The winner of this tournament will qualify for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
I see Tahiti has withdrawn from the Olympic Qualifiers as well as the U20's WC Qualifiers - I smell a rat (Reynald Temarii). Amazing Now Termarii has gone Tahiti has no funds.

Players will be All White for Olympic qualifiers

"NZF plan to hold a camp in Taupo next month when two north-south games will also be played. They will ask for regions to nominate players to ensure players they don't currently know much about aren't missed. They are also undertaking another worldwide fishing expedition to see if they can catch New Zealand-eligible players they don't presently know about."

I read link to newspaper website of important information, I see this comment... "We will look to fill them all," NZF chief executive Grant McKavanagh said. "Asia is one possibility but we will look at Australia to see if we can get some good quality games with them. It's the lowest-cost option but we also know it's good quality. We would probably call the team New Zealand A and would like to see at least one of those games in New Zealand."

My home, Spain, does not issue "A" team, we are not poorly dubbed 1980's show of TV with man of shaved head. T Mister I recall. I note in my travels, I see Zelanda in Adelaide on TV with Australia. I ask, will Australia want to play your country again, even with junior strength team of youth players?
