The Melanesia Cup 1988 was the first Melanesia-wide football tournament ever held. It took place in Solomon Islands and four teams participated: Fiji, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.
The teams played each other according to a round-robin format, and the top two teams (Fiji and Solomon Islands) played off in a final to determine the winner. New Caledonia and Vanuatu also played each other, on the same day as the final, to determine third place.
Fiji won the tournament with a 3-1 victory in the final, while Vanuatu retained third place by defeating New Caledonia 1-0.
