First team arrives for FIFA Club World Cup

Hienghene Sport, winners of this year’s Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League, have arrived in Doha ahead of the start of the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019.

The team from New Caledonia will open the tournament on December 11 at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium when they

face the Qatari champions and FIFA Club World Cup host nation representatives, Al Sadd SC. Hienghene Sport became the first New Caledonian side to win the OFC Champions League and qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup, and only the second non-New Zealand side to do so. Also, it is the first time a senior New Caledonian side – club or country – has competed in a global football tournament.
