Beckham Boots Up for Wellington

Soccer star David Beckham will join his team Los Angeles Galaxy in a $2 million exhibition match against Wellington Phoenix. “We as the club are bearing most of the costs,” said Phoenix owner Terry Serepisos. “It’s crucial David Beckham takes the field and plays. If for some unforeseen circumstance he gets injured prior to the game then the game will be rescheduled at a later date to be confirmed.” Phoenix season memberships have risen from 100 to around 2300 as a result of the Beckham announcement. The match is scheduled for December 1 at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium.
