Leading rental car company Budget New Zealand have joined the Wellington Phoenix family of premium partners, committing to support the men’s and women’s teams for the current A-League season and beyond.
The partnership will see the Budget brand feature prominently on the back of the men and women’s playing shorts for the next three years.
The Budget brand made its debut on the back left of the women’s shorts for their historic opening round match against Melbourne City in November and will remain there for the rest of their first Liberty A-League season in Wellington.
Budget, which has a network of more than 40 locations in New Zealand, is also a back-of-short sponsor for the Phoenix men.

“We will be backing the teams over the next couple of years and look forward to bringing fun and excitement to not only their loyal fan base in Wellington but Kiwi sports lovers across the country.”
