The TAB are giving the first 200 adult Phoenix season members a free $10 bet on the Phoenix for the game this Sunday.
This week the Wellington Phoenix announced a new partnership with national sports betting agency TAB Sport.
To celebrate the launch, the TAB are giving the first 200 adult Phoenix season members a free $10 bet on the Phoenix for the game this Sunday.
Wellington Phoenix FC Chairman Rob Morrison said the partnership was another strong vote of confidence in the club and would help the Phoenix further strengthen its ambition of growing and developing support for and interest in its brand and football nationwide.
"The club is committed to being a leader in the New Zealand sporting landscape, something that will deliver major benefits for both the club and the game of football in New Zealand in the future. "We're delighted to have an organisation of the standing and ability of TAB Sport onboard with the club. Both our organisations are passionate about what we do and about the future of the club and the game in this country."
Michael Stiassny, Chairman of the New Zealand Racing Board, the organisation that owns and operates TAB Sport, said the Phoenix had captured the imagination of sports fans throughout the country.
"Our customers love their football. The Football World Cup is always one of our biggest events and the Hyundai A-League and the Phoenix, in particular, is building interest at a phenomenal rate. The club has sport's most passionate fans in the Yellow Fever and a Phoenix home game is an unrivalled entertainment experience. We believe TAB Sport can add even more to that experience.
"But, crucially, we want to be part of the great things that are happening in football nationally and we're looking forward to working with the club to cement the Phoenix's status as a truly premium sports brand."
TAB Sport is already a major supporter of football in New Zealand, with significant annual levies paid to the national governing body based on wagering turnover and profit.
The first 200 season members who turn up at the Pavilion Bar on Sunday after public gates open at 3.30pm will get a free bet. All you need to do is bring your season membership card and photo age identification and you will receive a $10 bet on the Phoenix to win against the Heart.
Just for being a season member!
Note: only one betting slip per season member. Bet cannot be redeemed for cash.
