Award For Sponsorship Of NZ Hockey
Telecom Wins National Award For Sponsorship Of NZ Hockey
Telecom Mobile won a national award last night for its sponsorship of New Zealand national women’s hockey – the Telecom 2GO Black Sticks.
The Best Inaugural Sponsorship Award was given to Telecom Mobile for its first year of sponsoring the Black Sticks at the New Zealand Post Sports Sponsorship Awards in Auckland.
“Telecom Mobile has been delighted to be associated with the New Zealand Women’s Hockey Team. To have been involved with the Black Sticks – an amateur sport that doesn’t traditionally enjoy the amount of exposure as some of the other codes – is particularly gratifying, “ says Mark Livingstone, Telecom Mobile’s Head of Marketing.
“It has been a great year working with the New Zealand Hockey Federation and the players – it has been a revelation for us. The Federation has bent over backwards to help us, and the players have been equally accommodating.
“We see our association with the Black Sticks as on-going and hope that the relationship will be reflected back in both theirs and our success. There has been a high level of recognition in the public and from our customers of the sponsorship,” he said.
The New Zealand Post Sports Sponsorship Awards showcase best practice in sport sponsorship. It offers recognition to those businesses, which support New Zealand sport at all levels of competition.
