THE Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) has released the draws to determine the order of its home and away Champions League final.

The winner of the Ba versus Amicale semi-final will host the first final on either May 10 or May 11.

The winner of AS Pirae versus Auckland City FC will host the second final on either May 17 or May 18.

OFC head of competitions Michael Song said they had done the draws to ensure fairness to the participating clubs for advanced planning.

"There are always logistical challenges in our region when planning a football match particularly when the final could take place in either Fiji, New Zealand, Tahiti or Vanuatu," Song said.

"This draw also allows the participating clubs some clarity for their own preparations after the semi-finals conclude this weekend."

This is the first time in two years that the competition will conclude in a home and away series.

Seven of the previous 12 OFC Champions League finals have been completed in this format.
