Sky Stadium and the Wellington Phoenix will donate $2 each for every ticket purchased. The Wellington Phoenix will also donate $1,000 for every goal scored by the Phoenix in this weekend’s Round 14 Hyundai A-League match against Western Sydney Wanderers.
Sky Stadium CEO Shane Harmon says "Sky Stadium supports this initiative by the Phoenix and other A-League clubs. We are two countries who always comes to each other’s aid in times of need and sport can play its part in supporting each other”.
Wellington Phoenix General Manager David Dome says that the club stands in solidarity with its Australian colleagues.
“New Zealand and Australia stand shoulder to shoulder in times of disaster and need and what is happening in Australia at the moment demands a response.
“The Hyundai A-League as a whole has committed to the cause and some of our players have already raised funds to support the relief efforts.
“We applaud the efforts of the entire football community and are happy we can play a small part, especially given this coincides with the visit of Western Sydney with New South Wales being the most affected state.
“We will be making a donation on behalf of Welnix and the Board for every ticket sold and ask that season ticket holders and all fans attending make a similar contribution to the cause on game day.”
