The 2007 OFC Women's Championship of association football took place in Lae, Papua New Guinea[1] between 9 April and 13 April. It was the eighth edition of the tournament.

The tournament was also known as the OFC Women's World Cup Qualifier, as the winner qualified for the 2007 Women's World Cup.

New Zealand have never lost a match to any of their three competitors at the OFC Women's Championship, with the closest result being a 2–0 win over Papua New Guinea in 1995.[2]

The Cook Islands, Fiji, New Caledonia, Samoa, Tahiti and Vanuatu were announced to take part, but withdrew before the tournament was organised.
