Jason Hicks is a New Zealand footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Wellington Phoenix in the Australian A-League.

Hicks signed with Wellington Phoenix on a short-term injury replacement contract.[1] However, his performances in the 2 league games he played in were impressive enough to land him a 2-year contract with the club.[2] Hicks scored his first goal for the Phoenix in a 3-2 victory over the Newcastle Jets on Feb. 9, 2014.[3]

Hicks was called into the All Whites squad for a May 30 friendly in Auckland against South Africa by interim coach Neil Emblen. Hicks made his international debut on the 30 May 2014 against South Africa, coming on as a substitute. The match ended in a nil-all draw.
