Wellington Phoenix 1, Adelaide United 1
Eden Park, Auckland, November 19 2011
This evening I was fortunate to be able to drag myself away from the election campaign to attend the Wellington Phoenix’s first ever game in Auckland and the first ever game of football at Eden Park, the home of New Zealand rugby union.
The game was a great success with over 20,000 in attendance and the result was a fair reflection of the contest – Phoenix 1, Adelaide United 1. Thanks to the ‘Nix management for bringing the team to Auckland. We’re not worthy! Here’s hoping for a repeat fixture next season.
