Capital Football & Wellington Phoenix Work Together for Clubs


In the depth of Club Football season, two of Wellington’s key Football organisations are working together to benefit all those involved in the sport.

One game to believe in. Two clubs to belong to.

The passion of footballers and football supporters is special. Whether you belong to a local club and show your support from the side lines of junior football, or you attend every Wellington Phoenix game, cheering on NZ-s only professional football club. Supporters are the lifeblood of our game and are vital in building strong clubs.

In the depth of Club Football season, two of Wellington-s key Football organisations are working together to benefit all those involved in the sport.

Two key initiatives have been announced around the Wellington Phoenix-s Membership campaign which will see local Football Clubs benefit from the closer association. During the 2013 Football season, each Capital Football Club will be offered a Wellington Phoenix adult and child 2013/14 season ticket to use for fundraising or reward purposes within their Club.

In addition, Capital Football Clubs Junior Clubs can benefit from their supporters nominating them to receive one of three adidas team wear accounts to purchase clothing and sporting equipment to benefit juniors. Nominations are taken as part of the season ticket purchase via www.prod.wellingtonphoenix.aleagues.com.au.

Wellington Phoenix General Manager David Dome, a long time club player and football supporter, is delighted that the organisations are working together more closely for the betterment of the sport and supporter base.

“We-re passionate about our game and about our supporters, and like all of those hard working club volunteers, are committed to making our Clubs the best they can be.

“We are delighted to be able to go some way towards adding additional support to the hard work that the team from Capital Football do in strengthening the foundations of our sport and look forward to other great initiatives throughout our 2013/14 season.”

Capital Football CEO Richard Reid agrees: “We have a great opportunity with New Zealand-s only professional football team right here in our neighbourhood. We look forward to working closely with the Wellington Phoenix so that our Clubs and especially our junior players can see their heroes in action.”

In addition to initiatives during the Club season, there will also be events such as a march past of Junior football players at the first home game of the Wellington Phoenix home season on Sunday 13 October and support during the season-s later games for football registrations.
