Wellington Phoenix set to play home semi with a sellout crowd

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 15 May 2024

The equation is simple for the Wellington Phoenix this weekend.

Win the game and they will be through to their first ever A-League Grand Final.

And they'll probably get a sellout crowd behind them with just 7,000 tickets remaining as of Tuesday afternoon.

The team have had their best ever regular season - finishing second.

The Phoenix drew 0-0 last weekend away to Melbourne Victory in the first leg of the semi-finals.

This Saturday night they will turn out in front of a roaring home crowd hoping to cheer them to victory. Giancarlo Italiano - manager of the Phoenix - speaks to Kathryn from the club's training facilities in Upper Hutt.
