Wellington Phoenix FC is an Australian soccer team based in Wellington, New Zealand, competing in the Australian A-League. The club replaced the now-defunct New Zealand Knights in the 2007/08 season. The Phoenix finished the 2008/09 A-League season in a respectable 6th position.
Earlier today, the Wellington Phoenix officially launched their Reebok home and away kits for the 2009/10 Hyundai A-League season. According to their website:
WHILE the apparel of many professional sporting teams seems to get increasingly garish with each passing season, Wellington Phoenix FC has bucked the trend by adopting a traditional design for its main playing strip for the Hyundai A-League 2009/10 season.
The Phoenix’s primary playing strip features bold black and yellow stripes, black shorts and black socks. Subtle trim adds a modern touch to the strip, with the striped design modelled on the club’s official crest.
While the “home” strip has a distinctly “retro” look, the Phoenix alternate strip offers a nice counterpoint with a truly modern design. Predominantly white, the alternate shirt features a bold yellow horizontal hoop trimmed with black across the chest.
