North Harbour NPC Strengthened With Hot New Signing

The North Harbour Rugby Union has signed up a hot new player for the NPC campaign – Vodafone!

This bright new star has been around for a year as a secondary sponsor and now joins the NPC team as principal major sponsor for a further three years.

Vodafone New Zealand Ltd, Sales and Marketing Director, Grahame Maher said Vodafone felt this was an exciting opportunity to pick up the ball and pack in behind the Union.

“We know this is going to be a fantastic year for North Harbour Rugby. We’d like all supporters to come along to the games, and for those who can’t make it, you’ll be able to get results on your Vodafone mobiles through our new mobile Internet service.”

North Harbour Rugby Union CEO Doug Rollerson said “we’re thrilled to have Vodafone pick up the principal major sponsorship of the Union, the NPC Team, the second XV and the Seven’s team.

“Our strategy is to employ quality people on and off the field and to form partnerships with quality brands – Vodafone now leads our list of quality brands.”

North Harbour also joins the Vodafone sponsored line up of the Vodafone Wellington Lions, Hawkes Bay Vodafone Magpies, Otago and Team Canterbury.
