New Zealand has its first women’s professional football team.
The team has been created in partnership between the Wellington Phoenix and New Zealand Football.
The Wellington Phoenix team will play in the Australian W-League team.
Wellington Phoenix General Manager, David Dome, says that this is an exciting moment for both the Club and women’s football in New Zealand.
The new team should also provide a massive boost to the Football Ferns leading into the 2023 Women’s World Cup on home soil.
