FIFA Ranking. Qualifiers in March (so no update before then) and precedent suggests FIFA ranking is used.

There were a few matches played in the Pacific Games after the November rankings are released, so the ranking can potentially change.

We also don’t know how many pots OFC will use for the draw. Could be 2, 3 or 4.

For example: Top 2 in Pot 1. Next 2 in Pot 2. Last 4 in Pot 3.

Or: Top 2 in Pot 1. Middle 4 in Pot 2. Last 2 in Pot 3. The OFC women’s Olympic qualifiers use 3 pots with the following seeding (based on FIFA women's ranking):
Pot A: New Zealand, Papua New Guinea
Pot B; Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands
Pot C: Vanuatu, American Samoa

The OFC can also put Vanuatu, who are the hosts, in Pot 1, together with New Zealand.

Or they can always put all teams in one giant pot and draw the teams without seeding. :grin1:

Without any official confirmation from OFC, it is just speculation at this point.
