The Wellington Phoenix football franchise has scored a new commercial partnership with national sports betting agency the TAB.

The sponsorship, which will see TAB Sport's logo featured on the sleeve of the Phoenix's playing strips and training gear, starts with this Sunday's home match against Melbourne Heart at Westpac Stadium in Wellington and continues until the end of the 2013-2014 season.

New Zealand Racing Board chairman Michael Stiassny hails the deal as TAB customers love their football with the World Cup always one of their biggest events, and the A-League and the Phoenix in particular building interest at a phenomenal rate.
