The Wellington Phoenix will welcome back some old friends - or new foes - to the capital for the first round of the A-League.

Their first opponents are expansion club Western United, coached by ex-Phoenix gaffer Mark Rudan, and featuring ex-skipper Andrew Durante among a handful of other Phoenix players.

Phoenix coach Ufuk Talay reckons the October 13 match is a great way to start.

He's sure they'll give Rudan a great reception.

The Phoenix will also play two games at Eden Park in the 2019/20 A-League football season.

The new season draw features a December 7th game against Western Sydney, before returning to Auckland in mid-February for a home game against Melbourne City.

All other home games are at Wellington's Westpac Stadium.
