Ticket sales for Wellington Phoenix's historic Football United Tour continue to be strong, with almost 40,000 tickets already sold in less than four weeks.

Wellington Phoenix General Manager David Dome said the Club was extremely pleased with the support the public have shown.

“This is a huge undertaking for the Club. But the public have backed us and we are determined to put on a great show for them.

“22,000 tickets have gone in Wellington, 10,000 in Auckland and over 6,000 in Dunedin. That-s almost 40,000 tickets for the Tour so far.

“In Wellington, we-re well ahead of where sales were at for LA Galaxy at the same time so we-re confident of getting the same sold out result”.

Reduced ticket prices for the Auckland and Wellington matches end Sunday 22 June.

“Early bird pricing finishes in less than two weeks so we-re encouraging fans to get in quick to avoid missing out on what promises to be a once in a lifetime sporting experience”, said Dome.
