OFC President David Chung met with Korea FA President Chung Mong Gyu on Thursday to discuss moves toward a closer relationship between the two football organisations.
Chung, who also visited the Hyundai factory in Korea, says the mission has so far proved fruitful.
“Korea FA is one of the Asian Football Confederation’s leading member associations and has been a good friend to the OFC for a number of years.
“Some of the items we discussed included international matches and match official exchanges,” Chung says.
The Korea FA has been a regular guest at OFC Congresses and Extraordinary Congresses dating back to at least 2004.
“Establishing closer ties with our neighbours in the AFC is an important project for developing the game in Oceania.
“Recently, Papua New Guinea U-23 played in an age group tournament in Indonesia as a result of these closer ties and any type of regular international fixture is helpful in giving our elite players exposure on the world stage,” Chung says.
Papua New Guinea played Indonesia, Maldives and Laos in the MCN Cup tournament in Jakarta last year.
