Less than 5,000 seats left in Wellington

Maybe one day there could be a North and South Island team. Given the Nix got over 20,000 to Christchurch to a game. Would add some spice to NZ football.

Fromt the Nix:


WELLINGTON Phoenix FC’s elimination semifinal against the Newcastle Jets at Westpac Stadium on Sunday, March 7, is proving the hottest ticket in town, with less than 5000 seats left for the big match.

The 34,500-capacity Westpac Stadium is expected to be sold out and Phoenix chief executive Tony Pignata is urging fans to secure their tickets quickly.

“We’re already close to capacity at Westpac Stadium after just five days of ticket sales. The game is certain to be a sell-out and the remaining tickets won’t last long.

The A-League has been more important for the development of football in NZ than it has been for the game in Australia.

Unfortunately, the better Wellington does, the more endangered the Australian clubs become.

And we heard in the press that the FFA are hoping for a final with 80,000 in Sydney watching Sydney v Melbourne. Ummmm I wonder how many for Sydney v Wellington? 15,000? (Even Sydney v Newcastle)
