Infinity Solutions New Sponsor Of Auckland NPC, Blues Teams

Business services company Infinity Solutions Ltd has signed an agreement with the Auckland Rugby Football Union (ARFU) to sponsor the Auckland NPC team and the Blues until the end of 2002.

Under the sponsorship agreement Infinity Solutions has signage rights at Eden Park for all Auckland NPC and Blues team home games. The Infinity Solutions logo will appear on the Auckland NPC team playing jerseys, training apparel, casual apparel and replica jerseys.

Infinity Solutions Marketing Manager Maree McGill said the sponsorship agreement built on the company's existing good relationship with the ARFU.

"Infinity Solutions and the ARFU have a background of working closely together. We provide a full range of IT solutions, including software development, 'pc' engineering services, network support and hardware supply. The sponsorship agreement establishes us as the ARFU's official and preferred supplier of these services.

"This is also Infinity Solutions' chance to support the game New Zealanders love and give our backing to the Blues and the Auckland NPC team, both of which have a great history of success," said Ms McGill.

ARFU Chief Executive David White said the sponsorship cements the strong link between the Union and Infinity Solutions.

"We are delighted that Infinity Solutions have agreed to upgrade its relationship from supplier to sponsor. Their support will enable the Union to continue to seek innovation and leadership in its IT infrastructure," he said.
