The Trans-Tasman Cup was an association football competition played between Australia and New Zealand. Six editions were played between 1983 and 1995 after the OFC Nations Cup was discontinued. It was considered the most important Oceanian tournament during the absence of the OFC Nations Cup. The tournament was won four times by Australia and twice by New Zealand. The 1995 edition doubled as a semifinal for the 1996 OFC Nations Cup.

Format[edit]

The Cup was played over two legs, one in Australia and one in New Zealand.
