#892 ... Football Footnote
The Footnote Dance Company strike the white pose in the Capital to encourage whiteout conditions at this weekend’s World Cup football qualifier. Tourism Wellington is urging people to dress all in white to show who they support when the All Whites meet Bahrain at Westpac Stadium on Saturday.
Dancers from the Footnote Dance Company were taking the message to the city streets this week. They started at the railway station, before making their way along Lambton Quay, through Civic Square and into Cuba Mall.
Company director Deirdre Tarrant said people were enthusiastic about the idea. “Hopefully, we’ll see all 35,000 fans at the stadium, and everyone at the Queen’s Wharf party wearing white.”
