Gatorade Extend Partnership With Wellington Phoenix


Wellington Phoenix and Gatorade have extended their partnership with the world’s leading sports drink continuing as the club’s official hydration partner for the next two seasons.

Wellington Phoenix General Manager, David Dome, is delighted that Gatorade have continued their support of the club and demonstrated their commitment and loyalty.

“Gatorade is proven to keep athletes hydrated and performing at their best, and given some of the extreme heat that can occur in the A-League this is extremely important.

“Gatorade is the world’s leading brand in sports hydration and they sit extremely well with our other leading brand partners.

“We’re thrilled that they have continued their partnership and commitment to the club.”

Gatorade will be providing their products as the first team continue their pre-season heading over to Australia for a 10-day close door pre-season camp in September.

Tejas Salway, Senior Brand Manager at Frucor Suntory, was pleased to continue the current partnership with the Wellington Phoenix and can’t wait to enjoy an exciting season ahead.

“Gatorade is proud to have supported the Wellington Phoenix since we launched in the NZ market and look forward to fuelling the Phoenix back into the playoffs this season!”
