Double The Fun As The Phoenix Face The Fury

As they chase a Hyundai A-league finals spot the Wellington Phoenix are selling two-for-one tickets as an incentive for fans to be at the final home game of the season against North Queensland Fury on Sunday February 13.

Fans buying a ticket from the Phoenix Store in Hunter Street, online at www.ticketek.co.nz, through the Phoenix hotline on 04 384 2457 or any Ticketek outlet will get another of the same value free.

Season members can also get one free ticket equivalent to the same seat as their membership (Phoenix Lounge members can only qualify for a seat of the same type, not a Lounge pass). A season membership card must be presented at either the Phoenix Store, the Michael Fowler Centre or at Westpac Stadium on game day.

The Wellington Phoenix want to encourage fans to get to the February 13 game which is likely to be the last game at Westpac Stadium this season.

“Our fans have been terrific for us this season and are of course one reason why we play so well at home”, said Wellington Phoenix CEO Nathan Greenham.

“We want to use the game versus Fury at Westpac Stadium to say thank you to those fans and to encourage as many of them to come down and support our last game this season

“We are also having a celebration for the Phoenix-s 500,000th supporter to come to a home A-League game, so one of those people buying a two-for-one may be that fan as well”.

The 500,000th fan will win a prize pack including a season 2011-12 season membership; one night for two people in Wellington-s Century City Hotel on game night; an invitation to the after-match function; a pre-match behind-the-scenes tour of the changing rooms and ground; ticket upgrade for two people to the Chairman-s Lounge at Westpac Stadium; two pairs of Sony headphones and a signed match ball.

Phoenix chief executive Nathan Greenham said the club recognizes how important its supporters have been over the past four seasons and the prize draw was a way of acknowledging them.

“The fans have become a major part of ‘the Phoenix experience- and we wanted to say thank you,” Greenham said.

“To have had over 500,000 people at our games is special and one lucky fan will be the recipient of what is a fantastic prize pack.”

The top six teams qualify for the finals and the Phoenix are currently in sixth spot. With qualification almost assured for the finals series the final game of the regular season against the Fury on Sunday will be an opportunity to celebrate.
