Be in to win your own piece of football history this Friday night…
IT was the biggest night in New Zealand football history in almost three decades – the night New Zealand beat Bahrain in front of 36,000 passionate fans at Westpac Stadium to secure a place in the World Cup finals for the first time since the breakthrough in -82.
Now Wellington Phoenix fans who attend Friday night-s Hyundai A-League clash against Melbourne Victory at Westpac Stadium will have the chance to secure their own piece of incredible memorabilia.
Courtesy of Wellington Phoenix and Positively Wellington Tourism, fans who attend Friday night-s game will go into to win one of 40 “One Shot For Glory” streetflags that were displayed throughout Wellington city in the lead-up to the big game.
The large streetflags are the perfect memento from a perfect night for New Zealand football. Even better, all 40 flags are signed by the Phoenix-s six All Whites – Mark Paston, Tony Lochhead, Ben Sigmund, David Mulligan, Leo Bertos and Tim Brown – as well as Phoenix and New Zealand head coach Ricki Herbert.
All you need to do to be in with a shot for one of these valuable collectibles is buy your ticket for Friday night-s game online at www.ticketek.co.nz or from the Phoenix club store on Hunter St. All current Wellington Phoenix season members will be automatically entered in the draw.
