Background

During the later stages of the 2006-07 season, the Football Federation of Australia removed the New Zealand Knights A-League licence due to club's financial and administrative problems and poor on-field performance. FFA then provided New Zealand Football a provisional A-League licence to sub-let to a suitable New Zealand team to enter the A-League 2007-08 season. After much delay, the final money amount needed for the final application came from Wellington property businessman Terry Serepisos in the last moments of the bid. FFA finalised a three-year A-League licence to New Zealand Football who then sub-let the licence to the Wellington-based franchise. The Wellington franchise was confirmed on March 19,2007

In Season 3 (2007-08) Wellingtons first season they finished 8th, although level with Perth Glory on points their inferior goal difference consigned them to bottom place.
