Phoenix City. The newest podcast covering New Zealand football. Phoenix City was founded in July 2015, after the In The Zone podcast ended and a Phoenix sized hole was left in the podcast market.

If you're listening to Phoenix City, you're listening to:

Patrick, the podcast's producer, head honcho and a rubbish referee. He is on Twitter: @patrick478

Cam, also known as Photomac, Yellow Fever's resident photographer. You've probably seen him wearing a bib at Phoenix games. Cam tweets at @NZPhotomac.

Dave, he’s big, he’s bold, and he has Opinions about Football. Twitter: @NZ_Dave

Andy, the podcasts head football analyst. Sadly, he's only half decent at that. He is also on Twitter: @FrostieDaSnowman

    Phoenix City - Göteborgs Atlet-och Idrottssällskap

    The Phoenix pulled off a shock 2-1 win over Melbourne City despite playing without any strikers, and we discuss if they can pull off a similar result against Adelaide.

    Patrick sits down with Welnix chairman Rob Morrison and talks about the licence extension and David Gallop, while the ASB Prem regular season has wrapped up and it's time for the semifinals. Oh, and we have some fun with Google Translate too.

    Phoenix City - 433

    Woohoo! We get 10 more years of watching the Phoenix lose to teams like Newcastle. Meanwhile, Hamish Watson see's double, and Storm Roux is a bit broken.

    The TeeDubs tripped up in their quest for a home semi-final, and Cam has his usual wrap in Kiwi's Overseas.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - KaPow-ell!

    Blake Powell joins the pod after scoring FOUR goals against WSW, and we talk to him about the 5-2 and look ahead to Newcastle.

    New Zealand Football return to form and screw up the Alex Jones transfer, and the TeeDubs and WeeNix both had good results in the ASB Prem.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Winless

    Another tough week as a Nix supporter ended with a 1-0 loss to the Glory, and we chat to Glory fans as well as Andy Keogh before the Nix head to a flare-ravaged Western Sydney.

    Team Wellington kept their hopes of a top-2 finish in the ASB Prem alive, and Tommy Smith is getting married during the Confeds Cup! What a bloke.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Shake It Off

    A trip to Christchurch doesn't yield a better result for the Nix, going down 3-1 to the Mariners. Ben Sigmund joined the pod to chat about the upcoming game against Perth, and we wrap up all the action in the ASB Premiership.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Phoenix vs City

    So, the Phoenix lost again.

    Meanwhile, the Football Ferns are off to the Olympics and the girls U17's are off to their World Cup too, and the TeeDubs steal a last gasp point.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - FFS

    After another disappointing away result, the pod try to find some positives in the Phoenix's performance. Meanwhile, the ASB Prem has served up a cracker of a game, and the Womens U17's have been scoring goals for fun in the Islands.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Soft

    It's been a strange old week, with us celebrating a 0-0 draw like a win, and Anthony Hudson coming out and labelling NZ footballers as "soft". The WeeNix went down to a late and controversial goal, and the Fever have cheap beers and free sausages for you at the TeeDubs game this weekend.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - The 'Zidane'

    The pod dissect the Phoenix's loss to CCM, and have all the talk you need on headbutts and elbows. Meanwhile, the ASB Prem is back from it's Christmas break this weekend, and we take some time to answer some listener questions.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Lump of Coal

    So Patrick royally kazoo-ed up this week, and recorded the pod through his laptop microphone instead of the actual mic's.

    So as we talk about the Phoenix's loss to Adelaide, the own goals/red cards/penalties of the previous round of A-League fixtures and the upcoming weekend of games, we sound like we are recording in a toilet somewhere.


  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - 3 points please, Santa

    It's a Merry podcast this week, but the Nix haven't quite got in the spirit yet after their 1-1 draw with Sydney FC.

    Elsewhere, the Wellington Derby ended with the TeeDubs on top, and Cam's list of Kiwi's Overseas is shrinking.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Feeling Hot Hot Hot

    It was hot in Cairns and that probably cost the Phoenix three points. The WeeNix were involved in quite possibly the most amazing ASB Prem game ever, and Cam has his wrap of Kiwi's Overseas.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Green sand

    It was a successful weekend in Auckland for the Phoenix, and Shane Harmon (CEO of Westpac Stadium) joins the pod to talk about it, as well as stadia, clashing kits and green sand.

    The WeeNix got their first win of the season in the ASB Prem, and Auckland City are off in Japan about to begin their Club World Cup quest.

    Phoenix City - Bridge Burned

    Brandon goes up to 9 losses out of 9 on his away trips as the Phoenix go down 2-1 to WSW. It was a weekend of football to forget, apart from Jamie Young.

    The TeeDubs and the WeeNix both lost, but WaiBOP are flying high after the second round of the ASB Prem.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Winning

    What a week. The Nix smashed Adelaide off the park in front of the biggest Wellington crowd in five years, and the All Whites finally won a game too! Elsewhere, it was the first proper round of the ASB Prem, and we have a comprehensive wrap of all four matches played and a preview of round two.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Rob vs Frank

    It's been another bumper week in Phoenix world, and the lads cover off everything from the 1-1 draw with the Mariners to the upcoming game against Adelaide and the #SaveTheNix campaign.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Did that really happen?

    Vinnie Lia scored from a corner. We can't believe it either.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054

    Phoenix City - Wings Clipped

    Phoenix assistant coach Chris Greenacre joins the pod to talk about the disappointing result against Newcastle, and look forward to the long journey to Perth.

    There were mixed results in the A-League predictions from last week (although Patrick is quite smug about one of his), and we ask Greenie some of the questions that were sent in by our listeners.

  • Main thumb 1400x1400 10945054
