Last Sunday (13th Oct) I got my first experience of the Hyundai A League. A family deal of four tickets for $49 had all of us enjoying the delights of the Westpac stadium and everything Wellington Phoenix has to offer.
Actually it was great. Maybe less than a third of the stadium was filled but its lovely to be able to have a beer in your seat. And not get robbed to watch football.
And it was fun. Even if I was changing Esme when the Phoenix scored, and we left at half time and as a result missed the second half where Brisbane Roar turned the game round to win 2-1.
It was bloody odd to not know what the fans were singing, and not know the people sat around me. But I'll definitely be going again so that might all come in time!
