It's an official sell-out at Wellington's Sky Stadium for Saturday night's A-League football semi-final between the Phoenix and Melbourne Victory.


Although it should be noted that not every seat in the stadium is sold to Nix supporters.


It means 32,000 fans will pack the Wellington stadium for the match, the biggest in the club’s 17-year history.

The record attendance for a Phoenix game in Wellington is 32,792, set when they last hosted a semifinal, against Perth Glory in 2010.


The ground capacity is 34,5000 however the Phoenix are not able to sell the extra seats as they are for away fans only.


The Phoenix are chasing their first-ever grand final berth in the club's 17-year history, with the semi-final tie level after the first leg in Melbourne was tied 0-0.


Phoenix captain Alex Rufer said earlier in the week that playing in front of a capacity crowd was huge for the team.


"We deserve it, Wellington deserves it and it would be awesome for the club," said Rufer

.

"We've really given it everything this year and hopefully we get a good crowd to show us that they support us too."


The winner will play either defending champions Central Coast Mariners or Sydney FC in the final.
