Win the chance to be our Match Day MC or Ground Announcer


Have you ever dreamed about being an MC for a major sporting event? Do you think you have the voice to make announcements at Westpac Stadium?

As part of our Kids Go Free round on Saturday 12 January, Wellington Phoenix are offering two young fans (aged between 10 and 15) the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a real-life MC or Ground Announcer at a Wellington Phoenix football game.

This is an amazing chance to experience behind the scenes at a Phoenix match and be part of the game day action!

The winning MC will get the opportunity to shadow our resident MC, Dave Rybinski, at Phoenix vs Central Coast Mariners on Saturday 12 January. You will accompany Dave for the pre-game activities around the grounds, and you will also be down on the pitch at half-time to assist with the halftime activation.

The winning junior Ground Announcer will get a behind the scenes experience in the control room with Jay Harvie and the chance to read out some of the ground announcements through the stadium loudspeaker. This may include reading advertisements, team news and upcoming Phoenix event information.

Both of the selected participants will also win a Phoenix prize pack featuring a drink bottle, scarf and bag.

To be in to win, all you have to do is submit a short video (maximum 45 seconds) telling us about yourself, what you think of Wellington Phoenix and why you are keen to be a junior MC or Ground Announcer.
