An array of kick-off times in Wellington to suit football fans of all ages has been confirmed for the FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015.
The public will be able to enjoy a collection of day and night games, on both week days and weekends.
Wellington Regional Stadium will host three double-headers during group match play. The first is on Saturday 30 May with kick-off times at 4pm and 7pm. The next pair of matches takes place on Tuesday 2 June at 4pm then 7pm. The football fever continues that weekend with a 4pm and 7pm double-header on Friday 5 June.
“These double-headers will draw fans from all around to the Capital. Our excellent facilities have seen a huge growth in ‘The Beautiful Game’ in the Capital, so the FIFA U-20s will be a memorable experience for all,” says Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.
A day of entertainment is in store when Wellington hosts another double-header of Round of 16 play-offs on Wednesday 10 June which kicks off at 4pm and 7.30pm again.
Wellington also takes centre-stage on ‘Super Sunday’ 14 June, when it hosts one of the four quarter-finals at 4.30pm.
Tickets go on sale to the football family from 28 April 2014 and then general public sales will commence on 13 June 2014, with venue packs discounted by a minimum of 20 per cent in 2014 and a five per cent cash rebate will go back to football clubs across New Zealand.
“These are exciting times for football fans in New Zealand – FIFA’s second largest global football event is coming here, and the big names of tomorrow will be discovered at our football grounds. It really will be a showcase and a football festival like Kiwis have never seen before,” said Beeche, CEO of the LOC New Zealand 2015.
