Wellington Gets Behind Choice Sports

Wellington Gets Behind Choice Sports

Finding the money to assist their local sports clubs is a constant issue that many sports administrators wrangle with. So when key executives from Choice Hotels Australasia came to town, Wellington sports clubs turned up to hear how they could benefit.

Choice Hotels hosted a special event at Quality Hotel Wellington on Monday night to showcase Choice Sports, a new accommodation offering for grassroots sporting organisations that aims to invest money back into local community sport. The recently launched programme is assisting Kiwi sports organisations of all sizes and at all levels to raise much-needed funds for their clubs.

Choice Hotels’ general manager, distribution and revenue, Aileen Cobern introduced the benefits of the Choice Sports programme during her visit to Wellington this week. She says she is looking forward to more Wellington clubs taking up the Choice Hotels opportunity to raise funds.

“Our hope is that Choice Sports will help ease the financial burden on Kiwi clubs, allowing them to travel more and gather extra funds to develop their respective sporting codes,” says Cobern. “The feedback from clubs has been extremely positive since our launch and we look forward to welcoming more clubs as this programme gathers momentum across NZ.”

By registering for Choice Sports, sporting clubs across New Zealand receive a 15% discount off the best available rate when booking accommodation at any Choice hotel in New Zealand and Australia. In addition, for each booking made, a 7% rebate will be paid back to the registered club, providing an extra source of revenue for organisations.

The offer is applicable to any travel made by anyone connected with each club. This may include group accommodation bookings for team travel, players, club officials, family members, and supporters travelling to watch their relatives and friends compete or even when heading away on holidays.

Sporting clubs and associations can become part of the Choice Sports programme, via an online application form at http://sports.choicehotels.co.nz.
