Interislander And Phoenix Join Forces
Interislander and Phoenix join forces for Wellington
Wellington's Phoenix FC has scored a significant sponsorship goal with today's announcement that the club has entered a three-year sponsorship with Interislander.
Interislander's group general manager, Seamus O'Sullivan, said the organisation was proud to be associated with the Phoenix.
"We have plenty in common. We both have a national reputation from a strong Wellington base, families are an important market for both of us, and we share a strong interest in Australia.
"Australian visitors are a big part of our customer base and Wellington Phoenix FC is a New Zealand club competing in Australia's premier football league, the Hyundai A-League.
"This is a win-win sponsorship, benefiting Interislander, Wellington's newest and most exciting professional sporting franchise and the people of our home base - the citizens of our capital city," Mr O'Sullivan says.
Wellington Phoenix head coach, Ricki Herbert, echoed Mr O'Sullivan's sentiments.
"Interislander is a New Zealand icon. It's well known, well loved and well supported throughout the land. It's a great example for us at the Phoenix as we build a club that is important to Wellington and New Zealand," he said.
