WATCH: Yellow Fever to lead supporters march to stadium ahead of semi-final

Wellington Phoenix supporters group Yellow Fever will lead a march to Sky Stadium ahead of their team’s crucial A-League semi-final against Melbourne Victory on Saturday.

The group invites Phoenix fans to join them in a mass show of support as they march from the Old Bailey pub in Lambton Quay to Sky Stadium, leaving at 5.30pm.

The 1km walk should take about quarter of an hour, getting the group to the stadium ahead of the 6.30pm kick-off.

Members of Yellow Fever appeared on TVNZ’s Breakfast show, sharing their plans to get behind the team as they strive to reach their first grand final in the club’s 17-year history.
