Wellington Phoenix must go
With weeks to go until the new A-League season kicks off, the Wellington Phoenix have just 1,651 paid-up members.
The Nix have not played finals since 2014/15, finishing ninth, seventh and ninth in the years since.
Wellington’s membership remains the lowest of the 10-team competition.
With two expansion licenses to be announced on October 31, there are calls for the Nix to be phased out of the league.
