Competition: win a bus for your school or teammates on October 8!


To celebrate ten years since our very first A-League match, Wellington Phoenix are offering a chance to win a bus to our very next A-League match – follow the instructions below and win!

On Sunday 26 August 2007 Wellington Phoenix played their first ever A-League match, in front of 14,421 at Westpac Stadium.

Steven Old became the first Phoenix player in history to pick up a yellow card after eight minutes before Victory captain Kevin Muscat’s penalty just evaded the outstretched hand of Glen Moss as the Nix conceded in the 19th minute.

Melbourne sharp-shooter Danny Allsopp doubled the visitor’s lead in the 60th minute, but it didn’t last long. Brazilian import and instant fan-favourite Daniel fired home Wellington’s first ever goal, before All Whites and Nix legend Shane Smeltz doubled the dose just five minutes later.

2-2 it finished that day. It was a spirited start, and with the sun out a cracking day for all in the stands!

Now, to mark the start of our second decade as a professional football club, Wellington Phoenix would like to invite you to join in the celebrations!


The prize:  Win a chartered bus for your schoolmates or club football teammates, a return trip to Westpac Stadium, and up to forty tickets to our Round 1 Hyundai A-League clash against Adelaide United!

The task: Simply shoot a short video (up to 30 seconds) and tell us/show us why you deserve to win. Sing us a song, show us your best juggling or football skills, do a choreographed dance with your mates – whatever you think will be good enough to win!

Then, share this on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account, and make sure you tag us – @Wellington Phoenix FC (Facebook), @WgtnPhoenixFC (Twitter), @wellingtonphoenix (Instagram), otherwise we won’t see your entry! 

Mandatory inclusions:  There are two phrases you must have somewhere in your video (either spoken, or on a sign) – “October 8, Save the Date” and “Come on you Nix!”  

Without BOTH of these, you can’t win!

Age limit:  You must be under 16 to enter.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 20 September, 2017


Good luck! And remember – October 8, Save the Date! COYN!
