For the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification, there were two scheduled inter-confederation play-offs to determine the final two qualification spots to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Format[edit]

The four teams participating were:

Confederation Placement Team
AFC Fifth Round (play-off for 5th place) winner  Bahrain
CONCACAF Fourth Round (Hexagonal) 4th place  Costa Rica
CONMEBOL Round-robin 5th place  Uruguay
OFC Second Round winner  New Zealand

The ties themselves were not drawn, but were allocated by FIFA as:

This allocation allowed better start times of the matches than the previous one, because teams were now in closer time zones. The draw for the order in which the two matches were played was held on 2 June 2009 during the FIFA Congress in Nassau, The Bahamas.[1]
