Football has been a regular event at the Pacific Games, the multi-sports event for Pacific nations, territories and dependencies, since 1963. Until 2011 the tournament was known as the South Pacific games.[1]

Since 1971 the competition has been held every four years, but was not played in 1999 due to contract issues. Since 2007, the men's competition has doubled as OFC's preliminary qualifying competition for the FIFA World Cup.

A women's tournament was first introduced in 2003, and has doubled up as the preliminary qualifying competition for the Olympic Games since 2007.
