“The fact that Nova Energy is joining the Phoenix family is a positive endorsement of what we are trying to achieve.”

Nova Energy chief executive Babu Bahirathan said his company was excited about the partnership.

“The Wellington Phoenix has a strong brand and is one of New Zealand-s great sporting properties,” Bahirathan said

“Nova Energy is one of New Zealand-s best kept energy secrets and we want to build our profile and we believe the Phoenix can help us do this.

“We want to work with the club and Wellington Phoenix members in a very real way which will benefit everyone.-

Nova Energy Chief Executive Officer Babu Bahirathan today welcomed a sponsorship deal that Nova Energy has agreed with the Wellington Phoenix Football Club.

Mr Bahirathan said he was excited about the partnership as it represented a significant opportunity to raise the profile of Nova Energy, NZ-s fastest growing energy supplier.

‘The Wellington Phoenix is a relative newcomer to the demanding A-League football competition, but the club has demonstrated that it can match it with its Australian rivals. The Phoenix has developed a strong national profile.

Mr Bahirathan said that Nova Energy-s name on the back of the Phoenix shirt will be the most visible marker of the relationship.
