SKYCITY Hamilton Supports Waikato Npc Rugby

SKYCITY Hamilton is extending its support of Waikato rugby, announcing it has signed a contract to renew sponsorship of Waikato NPC Rugby for the next three seasons, until 2007.

The SKYCITY Hamilton logo will again feature on the back of Waikato rugby jerseys and SKYCITY Hamilton will remain the Entertainment Home of Waikato Rugby. After every home game, the Waikato NPC team players will return to The Post Buffet Restaurant, at SKYCITY, for their after match dinner. In addition, players will take part in various activities with customers in SKYCITY's Number Eight bar.

Phil Keber, General Manager Operations SKYCITY Hamilton, says the sponsorship is extremely successful for SKYCITY Hamilton, and customers enjoy being part of the rugby action

"Whether our customers are watching the game on the Number Eight bar's big screen or socialising with players when they visit our venue, they always seem to have a fantastic time. Rugby really brings the Waikato community together and SKYCITY is delighted to play its part in supporting our local team and enabling fans to meet their sporting heroes. Everyone is very supportive and excited to be part of it," says Mr Keber.

Gary Dawson, Chief Executive Waikato Rugby Union, says he's delighted that SKYCITY Hamilton will continue to be one of Waikato Rugby's key partners.

"SKYCITY Hamilton is a valued sponsor of the Union. Both Waikato Rugby and SKYCITY Hamilton are major entertainment providers within the Waikato region, so in many ways the partnership represents a great 'fit'. It is pleasing to be able to continue this sponsorship for another three years as it provides security and continuity for professional rugby in the Waikato region," says Mr Dawson.
