After much speculation, trials and tribulations professional soccer is coming to Wellington. They will be competing in the Australian A-League replacing the defunct New Zealand Knights FC who played out of Auckland.
It was touch and go whether they’d win the franchise but after a rich Wellingtonian Terry Serepisos stuck his hand in his pocket and put up the dosh we’re now looking forward to a new home team to support.
MT is in heaven to think once again he can be a season ticket holder although I’m not sure how he’ll tolerate the other footie mad followers. The Supporters Club has already announced itself as “Yellow Fever”. Not quite the Barmy Army but am sure that it will shape up nicely as the name, colours and of course the players are announced over coming weeks.
