The 2024 Women's T20I Pacific Cup (known as the South Seas Pacific Cup for sponsorship reasons)[1][2] was the second edition of the Women's T20I Pacific Cup, a Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket tournament. It took place in Auckland, New Zealand, from 17 to 21 January 2024.[3] The participants were the women's national sides of Cook Islands, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, and Vanuatu, as well as a New Zealand Māori team.[4]

The Cook Islands and New Zealand Māori competed in the women's Pacific Cup for the first time,[5] with it being the first tournament for the Māori women's team and the first time that a senior Māori side had competed in an international event since the men's team at the 2001 Pacific Cup.[6][7] All matches were played at Lloyd Elsmore Park (the final was originally to be played on the outer oval at Eden Park).[8]

Papua New Guinea were the defending champions, having won the previous edition of the tournament, which was played in Vanuatu in October 2022.[9]

The Cook Islands played warm-up matches against Auckland University Cricket Club and Kumeu Cricket Club.[10][11] The Papua New Guinea squad held a pre-tournament training camp in Napier.[12]

The tournament was broadcast live on TVNZ, New Zealand Cricket's YouTube channel and Sky Pacific.[11] Papua New Guinea retained the trophy after defeating the New Zealand Māori in the final.[13] Vanuatu defeated Samoa in the third place play-off, and their all-rounder Rachel Andrew was named as player of the tournament.[14] Cook Islands won the fifth place play-off against Fiji.[15]
