Round 5 sees the Wellington Phoenix come up against Adelaide United and both teams will be looking to take the three points following the previous round of the Hyundai A-League.
The international break has come at the right time as Head Coach, Mark Rudan’s squad develops further heading into this home fixture.
It is Female Football Round in the Hyundai A-League this week so in association with the National Council of Women of New Zealand (NCW) we are making complimentary tickets available to the first 1,000 women and girls at the stadium.
You could be one of those 1,000 women or girls who comes down to enjoy an evening of football as we celebrate the women in our lives and in sport.
Cash the Gate is back and we’ll be starting from a base of $12,000 so if the crowd exceeds 10,000 people, you could be in to win! Grab your ticket and get your friends and family together and head down to join in on all the action. Terms and Conditions here.
