Wellington Phoenix Ins & Outs – Round 8


We’re back home for our Round 8 fixture which sees Wellington Phoenix entertain Central Coast Mariners at Westpac Stadium.

After last weekend’s scintillating performance against Premiers Sydney FC, Mark Rudan’s men will look to continue their fine form against Hyundai A-League strugglers Central Coast Mariners.

Despite propping up the table, Rudan will not underestimate the travelling side as he concentrates on the consistency of the performances so far in the Hyundai A-League.

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 to join in on all the action.
