For the third year in a row, the OFC Champions League final will feature Auckland City and Team Wellington but for the first time the two clubs will battle it out over two legs.

The first leg of the home-and-away final will be played at Auckland City’s home ground of Kiwitea Street on Sunday 30 April at 2pm.

The final match of the 2017 OFC Champions League will be played at David Farrington Park on Sunday 7 May, kicking off at 1pm.

Kiwitea Street has seen its fair share of high profile matches, especially over the past seven years during which time Auckland City has dominated domestically and regionally.

After hosting its first OFC Champions League match at the weekend and seeing Team Wellington through to the final with a comprehensive 7-1 victory over AS Magenta, David Farrington Park is set to host its first final.

However, in Oceania’s premier international club competition, it’s Auckland City who hold the record over their opponents with two consecutive OFC Champions League final victories against Team Wellington.
