Many Benefits to Netball Sponsorship

By Adele Lendich, CEO
of Netball North Harbour.

AMI Netball North Harbour is proud of our strong relationships with our Sponsors, Community Partners, Official Suppliers and Advertisers.

AMI became our naming rights partner in 2008 and since then have been intricately involved with supporting the business of Netball North Harbour and also the game and its capability. Every Saturday AMI provides an ‘On Court Crew’ at the courts. The crew members walk around the courts handing out nail files, hair ties, ponchos, shoe laces and other necessities that help our teams concentrate on the game. The AMI Staff from the Takapuna office are frequently here as well supporting the crew which is great to see. AMI provides us with the majority of prizes for our tournaments and competitions.  One of the highlights of the year was the AMI Community Event Days where many of our Primary and Intermediate school players had the opportunity to meet some of the LG Northern Mystics team members who posed for photos with them. 
Our Official Sponsors are the North Shore New World group and Barfoot and Thompson. New World has been a dedicated sponsor of netball for many years and we are delighted that we are supported by the six North Shore stores – Albany, Birkenhead, Browns Bay, Devonport, Milford and Takapuna.   Barfoot and Thompson is a new inclusion in our sponsorship family and their new signage is proudly displayed on the fence line giving them high visibility.
KPMG, Benefitz and MaiFM make up our Community Partners and all provide support in different ways.  It is significant to note that the business community can assist in kind and these sponsorships are very valuable to us.  Konica Minolta provides ‘in kind’ sponsorship for our certificates and newsletters. Konica Minolta also has signage in the Arena as well as on the courts.  Korbond Industries has been a sponsor of ours for many years and generously provide goods that dress up our events both on and off court and also supply goodies to the 1000 children that attend our holiday programme every year. The signage in our Onewa Arena for both Simpson Western and Konica Minolta has received significant TV exposure this year with interviews of the LG Mystics and the Silver Ferns during their trainings by TV One, TV3, SKY Sport and Maori Television.
If signage or sponsorship is something that interests your business, particularly if you want significant brand exposure to our 16000 members and the tens of thousands of cars that pass our complex every day, then please give Annie Greenheld or myself a call to discuss further.
