Phoenix Football Feast

Go Media Stadium will host the Macca's Festival of Football on Saturday, 25 November for an historic double-header featuring both the Wellington Phoenix men’s and women’s teams.

The men will open the feast of football at 4:30pm, playing a mouth-watering tie against three-time premiers Melbourne City.

The Phoenix women will then make their debut appearance at Go Media Stadium when they take on Perth Glory in the distance derby, with kick-off at 7:15pm.

Fans will be treated to a football extravaganza, with this being the first time that Phoenix has staged a double-header outside of Wellington.

We have worked with our naming rights partner Go Media to create an event with family-friendly pricing, where the whole family can watch both games from just $48.

The Festival of Football event will be packed full of fun for the whole family as matchday sponsor Macca’s will build their inflatable football pitch ready for patrons to test their skills. More attractions and food and beverage outlets will also be ready to entertain the crowd before and between the matches.
