Unlike the men's football competition at the 2015 Pacific Games where only under-23 athletes were eligible to compete, this tournament will not be age-restricted and thus will be open to senior men's national teams. However, New Zealand will be the only team to field an under-23 side. Players born on or after 1 January 1997 will be eligible to represent New Zealand.
