NZ sports commentater gives us the low-down on the Phoenix's sold-out semi-final match

A whopping 32,000 are expected at Wellington Sky Stadium ahead of the sold-out match between the Pheonix and Melbourne Victory in the A-League Semi Final on Saturday

Building anticipation for the big evening, Jacob Spoonley (a previous player and current Sky Sports commentator) spoke with The Breakfast Club about the magnitude of people that will be attending.

“The Phoenix have gone out of their way to ensure there will be a lot of big names in the house tomorrow, Ben Sigmund, Mark Paston and Ricki Herbert”

For those newly aboard the Pheonix bandwagon, Jacob explained the significance of this moment for the club “The Pheonix are the only team in the competition, over 17 years that don't have any silverware”

The club’s social media has labeled it as “The biggest match in the club's history”. A victory tomorrow night would give the club their very first visit to an A-League final.

Giving The Breakfast Club an insight into how the team is feeling, Jacob revealed “They’re a highly motivated bunch to get to the final”

However, explained this game could be down to the wire. “Tomorrow night is going to be a very tense very tight affair. 2 out of the 4 meetings of the teams, there have been two last-minute goals”

Whether you’ll be supporting from Sky Stadium or your own home, the Yellow Fever YouTube page has full videos with lyrics to the Phoenix chants, ensuring all fans can support the Phoenix.
