Kick your way to $100K with the Phoenix!


To launch the start of our second decade in style Wellington Phoenix are giving one lucky fan the chance to win $100,000.

Starting this Sunday 8 October with our opening Hyundai A-League match against Adelaide United, Phoenix are introducing the 100K Crossbar Challenge.

One person. One shot. $100K.

Simply purchase a Crossbar Challenge T-shirt (RRP $25+GST) available from Football Central, the Wellington Phoenix online store and on game day from the Official Phoenix Shop located at Aisle 23 at Westpac Stadium to be eligible to enter.

One lucky supporter wearing the T-shirt will be randomly selected from the crowd to participate in the Crossbar Challenge at half-time and has one shot to strike the crossbar from half-way.

If unsuccessful, the contestant will be allowed to try for $500 from the edge of the goal box, courtesy of JackMac insurance brokers.

The Crossbar Challenge will be run across five home games during the season, or until the challenge is won, so buy your T-shirt ahead of the first game to maximise your chances on being selected.

As an additional promotion for the first game, all footballs kicked into the crowd during the match can be kept by fans as a very special keepsake.

T-shirts are available online on Thursday from phoenixshop.co.nz, in-store from official retail and branding partner Football Central (Level 1, 133 Tory St, Top of Tory) from Friday and at the Official Phoenix Shop located at Aisle 23 at Westpac Stadium on game day.

Come cheer on Phoenix to win big, and win even bigger yourself!
