Phoenix aiming for 10,000 crowd at first women’s A-League fixture on home soil

posted in: Events, News

The Wellington Phoenix are aiming to attract a record-breaking crowd of 10,000 when their women’s team play their first A-League fixture on home soil.

On Sunday November 20, the Phoenix will host Melbourne City in round one of the 2022-23 Liberty A-League season.

The club is branding the event: Be Part of Herstory.

It will be the first-ever game of professional women’s football in New Zealand and the club are targeting an A-League women’s record crowd of 10,000.

Free entry for kids

Tickets are now on sale for the family-friendly 3pm kick-off and to celebrate, the Phoenix are making entry free for kids, while offering a special two-for-one ticket deal for adults.

Phoenix women’s memberships for all nine of their home matches are also now available and they are free for all junior players (under 16-years-old) registered with Capital Football.

Principal partners Spark and OPPO have extended their support for the club by getting in behind the women this season and they will have a range of prizes up for grabs at Sky Stadium.

Chemist Warehouse have also come on board as the matchday partner.

Dome: ‘This is going to be a very special day …’

Phoenix general manager David Dome has issued a call to action for what the club regards as an unmissable event.

“This is a going to be a very special day in New Zealand’s football history,” Dome said.

“The club has worked incredibly hard to get a professional women’s team up and running and last year Covid scuttled plans to have them play at home.

“But now it’s happening – and we want Wellingtonians and football fans from around Aotearoa to get in behind the women at Sky Stadium.

“A crowd of 10k would be a record for the A-League women’s competition and would be a fitting way to acknowledge the significance of the occasion. So Be Part of Herstory and buy your tickets now!”
