The Wellington Phoenix are returning to Christchurch.
After playing two A-League games in the city before the 2011 earthquake, they'll return for their round five match against the Perth Glory in the upcoming season.
The club has agreed to an option that allows them to play a game a season in the garden city for the next three years should the schedule permit.
They've also confirmed they'll meet the Newcastle Jets in round three over Labour Weekend in Napier.
