Wellington Phoenix welcome aboard betting agency sponsor

Wellington Phoenix has signed a new sponsorship deal with New Zealand-based sports betting agency TAB Sport, reports Sports Pro. The partnership will see TAB Sport's logo featured on the sleeve of the Phoenix's playing shirts and training gear for the next two Hyundai A-League seasons.

While financial terms were not disclosed, a deal of this kind is estimated to be worth around US$75,000 per year.

Commenting on the deal, Phoenix chairman Rob Morrison said: "The club is committed to being a leader in the New Zealand sporting landscape, something that will deliver major benefits for both the club and the game of football in New Zealand in the future."

"We're delighted to have an organisation of the standing and ability of TAB Sport onboard with the club. Both our organisations are passionate about what we do and about the future of the club and the game in this country."

Michael Stiassny, chairman of the New Zealand Racing Board, the organisation that owns and operates TAB Sport, added: "Our customers love their football. The Football World Cup is always one of our biggest events and the Hyundai A-League and the Phoenix, in particular, is building interest at a phenomenal rate."

"The club has sport's most passionate fans in the Yellow Fever and a Phoenix home game is an unrivalled entertainment experience. We believe TAB Sport can add even more to that experience."
