The Wellington Phoenix are determined fans won-t be priced out of the Football United Tour with ticket prices starting at $35 for adults and $16 for a child at Westpac Stadium and Eden Park.
At Westpac Stadium fans will get to see two games, each featuring an English Premier League club, with one also involving the Phoenix.
Phoenix General Manager David Dome says the Club wanted to make the games as affordable as possible.
“There are significant costs associated with bringing out English Premier League teams, but we are a small club determined to aim high and that-s what we have done,” Dome said.
“Regardless of our costs, we have tried to price the games as competitively as possible to enable as many New Zealanders as possible to be a part of a unique event and to reward our loyal members.
“Wellington Phoenix Foundation Club members - those season ticket holders who have been with us every season since the start - will get a free ticket”.
“Season 14/15 Season Ticket holders and Club Members will get the opportunity to buy tickets at a good discount and spread the payments until July.
“An adult season ticket holder can see two EPL teams on one day for $35 and a child for $16.
“That-s unbelievable value that is unmatched for two English Premier League sides anywhere in the world!
“It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see two EPL teams in action on the same ground against different opposition.
“That is certainly a first for the southern hemisphere and extremely rare elsewhere.
“It is cheaper than going to an All Black test match”
The Phoenix will also play in Auckland and for that game, against West Ham United at Eden Park, the public can buy a ticket for $35.
Club Members also have the ability to buy tickets at a discount for that match as well.
The Forsyth Barr match, which is a joint venture with Dunedin Venues, has also been priced extremely sharply.
Terry Davies, Dunedin Venues CEO, says that Forsyth Barr stadium is also very keen to price the Newcastle United v Sydney FC competitively.
“We have ensured that the ticket prices will be affordable for all but also recognising the high calibre of the teams involved and quality football we-re expecting” Davies said.
“Dunedin prices will range from $25 - $69 for adults, $15 for children and a specially priced family package, 2 adults and 2 children at $80 - less than half price in premium seating.
“We believe these competitive prices will see the south turn out in their numbers for this outstanding match. Dunedin will be the first venue in NZ to host a top tier English side in 20 years.
“This match is an added fixture to the Forsyth Barr Stadium members- event calendar and in recognition of their continued support, we will be offering all members free entry to the match.”
