The 2014 OFC Women's Nations Cup (also known as the 2014 OFC Women's Championship) was the 10th edition of the OFC Women's Nations Cup, and took place in Papua New Guinea from 25-29 October 2014.[1][2][3] The football tournament was organised by the Oceania Football Confederation. It was the tenth edition of the tournament.

New Zealand won the tournament without conceding a goal, thus winning their third straight edition and qualifying to the 2015 Women's World Cup.[4]

Hosts

Papua New Guinea and New Zealand had submitted a bid for the tournament. Papua New Guinea was chosen at the OFC Executive Committee on 29 March 2014.[1] Papua New Guinea had hosted the 2007 edition previously.
