Note: The OFC disciplinary committee ruled that 7 of PanSa's 18 players were not registered according to international transfer rules, some of which had been fielded in their first two matches. The first two matches were thus awarded 2–0 to the opposition, whilst PanSa were unable to field a team in the 3rd match (which was not played, and subsequently awarded 2–0 to Tafea). PanSa then withdrew from the competition, causing their fourth match to be awarded 2–0 to Titavi.
The top two teams from each group progressed to the semifinals.
