To celebrate the launch of the Wellington Phoenix’s start to the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season, Prime Television have announced they will be screening the opening match against Western United FC this Sunday 13 October.
The highly-anticipated fixture will be screened at the delayed time of 11.30pm on Prime TV this Sunday evening. This is the very first time that Prime TV has screened a Wellington Phoenix match free-to-air, and General Manager David Dome says that it gives fans another way to see the match if they haven’t been able to make it to the game or watch it on SKY TV.
''This is a moment we've been working towards for a long time and we're extremely grateful to our partner, Sky Sport, who have provided the pathway for this to happen''
‘'As New Zealand's only professional football team, we want to connect to every person in the country and particularly this year, show the next generation of Kiwi footballing talent.''
Prime TV will also screen the Wellington Phoenix v Central Coast Mariners fixture on Saturday 4 January from 7pm.
