Vodafone behind Vodafone Warriors after NRL ruling

Vodafone gets behind the Vodafone Warriors after NRL ruling

“Get behind the boys” is the message from Vodafone New Zealand following the NRL penalty ruling against the Vodafone Warriors last night.

Vodafone reaffirms its commitment to the club and the current management calling on all New Zealanders to support the team in a bigger, louder way than ever before.

“Now that the NRL has made its decision it’s time to get behind the team,” said Vodafone Chief Executive Russell Stanners.

“If ever there was a time to fill the stadium seats and get behind our boys then this is it - remember the Kiwis won the tri-Nations last year. If we get behind the Warriors I am confident they will make us proud!

“The team needs all the support they can get from their fans and we need to stand by them for what’s going to be another exciting season,” says Russell.

Vodafone One Tribe - the brand new supporters club for the Vodafone Warriors - has had an overwhelming response with more than 1,000 people joining in the first 24 hours since it was launched yesterday. For more information visit http://
