Eastbourne Phoenix fan Lesley Quinn knows only too well the benefits of becoming a season member - she is the first winner of a special Sony home theatre package as part of a club membership promotion.

Lesley was presented with her Sony home theatre package - comprising an X-series 40” Bravia LCD TV, a Blu-ray DVD player and an integrated home theatre TV cabinet, worth $7500 - by Phoenix chief executive Tony Pignata at the Sony Style store on Willis St.

Lesley and her family attended all 10 Phoenix home games last season but were not members. For the upcoming season Lesley decided to sign up for a membership with her husband and their three children. Lesley-s father, who travelled down from Waikanae for Phoenix home games last season, will also join the rest of the family at the Wellington club-s 11 matches at Westpac Stadium this season.

Becoming a season member has paid off handsomely already.

“I can-t wait for the season to start,” Lesley said. “It-s so exciting to watch the Phoenix play at home and now, thanks to the Phoenix and Sony, it will almost be like being there when the team plays away.”

Supporting the Phoenix has quickly become a tradition for Lesley and her family.

“My father comes down from Waikanae for games and we get to spend time together as a family. My father is football-mad and we all love going to Phoenix games.”

Although one Sony home theatre package has been won, another is still up for grabs.

A second draw will be made on August 1 for all memberships taken out before July 31.
