The Wellington Phoenix are on a public relations drive in Auckland as they look to boost poor ticket sales for Saturday's A-League match against the Perth Glory.
Players have been involved in games of futsal and other promotional activities including signing sessions and charity visits to try and stimulate interest.
Assistant coach Chris Greenacre says they have to do their bit.
"We're the only professional Kiwi club and we want everyone to get out there and support us whether we're in Wellington or in Auckland or Hamilton or wherever it may be. It's important as a club that we get out there and we're mixing with the community."
Ticket sales are sitting at 8,000 for the match at Eden Park, with a crowd of 15 to 16,000 needed to break even.
