Football's Oceania Nations Cup will be held in Honiara in June.
The Solomon Islands' capital has won the hosting rights, after it was widely tipped the tournament would be held in New Zealand after Fiji was stripped of the events.
The tournament is the second stage of the Oceania qualifying process for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with the winner to play in next year's Confederations Cup.
New Zealand Football chief executive Grant McKavanagh says it didn't make sense financially for them to host it.
"The way it was sent to us in the bid document, we don't have any control over the income and there was going to be a cost factor of four to $500,000 so... we couldn't head down that road," he says.
McKavanagh says their resources are also being spread between their men's and women's Olympic teams and two age group women's teams.
New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti and Vanuatu will take part in the tournament.
