The New Zealand club will take on the Argentinean giants at Wellingtonâ€™s Westpac Stadium on Friday, July 23, a week after Boca meet the Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.
Phoenix chief executive Tony Pignata said it was a great opportunity for the Phoenix to meet a team with such great history and success especially with the way football is heading in New Zealand.
â€śBoca Juniors is one of the worldâ€™s top clubs and weâ€™re excited by the prospect of the Phoenix taking on a team of such high calibre at Westpac Stadium on July 23,â€ť said Pignata.
â€śThis will be a fantastic opportunity for fans to see some of the worldâ€™s best players in action and will be a tremendous hit-out for the Phoenix as we head into the competition season.
â€śFootball is on a huge high in New Zealand as a result of the All Whitesâ€™ qualification for the 2010 World Cup and our successful 2009/10 season. We at the Phoenix want to see that high continue now and long-term and this match against Boca Juniors is testament to that ambition.â€ť
