The 2003 OFC Women's Championship was held Canberra, Australia from 5 to 13 April 2003. It was the seventh staging of the OFC Women's Championship.

Originally scheduled for 19-29 November 2002, the tournament was postponed after withdrawal by American Samoa, Tahiti and Tonga. A rescheduled tournament with seven teams in two groups was arranged, however Fiji and Vanuatu withdrew, resulting in a five nation championship of one group.[1]

The tournament served as the OFC's qualifying tournament for the FIFA Women's World Cup 2003. OFC's one berth was given to the winner - Australia.

Participating nations

Of the twelve nations affiliated to the Oceania Football Confederation, five entered the tournament.[2] Also, this was Australia's last appearance in the tournament before moving to the Asian Football Confederation in 2006.
