Ricoh supports Wellington Phoenix community partnership

Ricoh supports Wellington Phoenix community partnership programme


Ricoh New Zealand is a proud supporter of the Wellington Phoenix and will cement its partnership further this weekend by joining the Club’s one-off Charity Strip.

Tomorrow’s A-League game against Melbourne Heart is the annual adidas/Wellington Phoenix charity match with this year’s proceeds going to Surf Life Saving NZ.

The Phoenix will be playing in a fully customised one-of-a-kind adidas strip, which was chosen by fans from nine options designed by some of the team.

Ricoh’s Wellington Branch Manager, Chris Thornton, says he is excited to be making Phoenix history this weekend by being the first partner to make a one-off appearance on the Charity Strip.

“As strong supporters of sport and the arts in the Wellington region, it means a lot to us to further our relationship with the team in this special way.

“We hope people get behind the charity event by bidding for their favourite player’s shirt on TradeMe and giving generously to Surf Life Saving NZ because the work they do is so important,” says Thornton.

Thomas Ben, Commercial Manager for the Phoenix, says: “This match is an important part of the club’s community engagement programme and while Ricoh has been a behind-the-scenes supporter, they are viewed as a long-term community partner and as such the club wanted to recognise their efforts in a unique way.”

Last year the Phoenix raised almost $20,000 for the Life Flight Trust and this year they want to raise even more.

The match kicks off at 5pm on 16 February at Westpac Stadium.
