Wellington Phoenix to reschedule Hyundai A-League Round 7 fixture with Melbourne Victory


Wellington Phoenix will work with Westpac Stadium, Melbourne Victory and Football Federation Australia to reschedule the Hyundai A-League Round 7 Phoenix v Victory fixture, after the match set for Saturday 19 November was postponed to allow repair work on the stadium.

Westpac Stadium confirmed that the venue must undergo repairs after a severe earthquake struck the Wellington area in the early hours of Monday 14 November.

“The safety of everyone is our first priority,” Wellington Phoenix General Manager David Dome said.

“With Westpac Stadium confirming it will not be available on Saturday 19 November, we are working with our partners at the venue, Melbourne Victory and Football Federation to find an alternative that suits all parties.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused to fans and while football plays an important role in the community, the thoughts of the Phoenix family at this time are with everyone affected by the earthquake.”

All fans who have purchased a ticket can claim a full refund. All ticket holders will receive an email from Ticketek outlining the refund process.

Fans also have the option to exchange their existing ticket for the re-scheduled fixture at no cost. Details of the process to exchange your ticket will be provided in the email from Ticketek.
